This is an incredible 1950s dress by Fred Perlberg. The fabric is high quality cotton with a fabulous print. Its design is just exquisite with a precious strapless bustier and a full circle skirt. Closes with a side zipper. The bodice is boned.
Note: This is a collector's piece in very good condition, priced accordingly to the label, quality, size, beauty, and condition.
Fred Perlberg (1901-1991) began working in the New York fashion industry when he was sixteen. Three years later, at the age of nineteen, he started his own company (around 1920). Fred Perlberg Originals were mid-priced party and dance dresses and were marketed across the United States and Canada. Fred Perlberg retired in 1968, but the company continued with Roger Milot as the designer.
