New at Couture Allure - Vintage Designer Dresses

New this week at Couture Allure - items from three French couturiers and some wonderful party dresses.

French couturier#1, a 1990's velvet and silk chiffon cocktail dress by Jean-Louis Scherrer. Floating drapes hang from the shoulders down the back.

French couturier #2, a 1970's vibrant orange silk suit by Givenchy. I guarantee you'll be noticed in this suit!

French couturier #3, a 1980's dress by Grès Boutique in black silk faille. A blouson bodice with deep dolman sleeves over a slim skirt defines 80's style. Dresses by Mme. Grès are nearly impossible to find anymore, so this is a rare treat indeed!

This 1970's black evening gown has a halter neckline and is trimmed with authentic black fox fur down the skirt front and along the hem.

From the 1950's, this strapless taffeta party dress by Kay Selig goes from this...... this! The sweet little shrug jacket attaches with 4 snaps under the front of the strapless bodice. How cool is that?
