This deadstock, true vintage bombshell of a 1950s dress by Emma Domb combines slinky, cherry red rayon jersey and black lace plus sequins, to devastating effect! The fitted, boned bodice has spaghetti straps holding up the straight neckline. Black lace is layered over the red jersey underneath, with shiny black sequins accenting the floral designs of the lace. The side-draped jersey skirt emphasizes the curves of the hips with a top layer wrapped over and around the straight underskirt. What appear to be vertical skirt panels at each side are actually part of the full, draped outer layer of the skirt in back. This fabulous late 50s cocktail dress looks like it has a straight skirt from the front, and a full skirt from the back--a very flattering design! In back, the lace bodice comes to a “V” and the dress is fastened with a plastic zipper. You can also see the original “Emma Domb” paper hangtag, still attached to the back of one bodice strap. The dress is fully lined in red rayon taffeta. Never worn and in mint condition, the only issue to note with this gorgeous Emma Domb 1950s party dress is the boning in the bodice, which might possibly have been added by the original owner, since it is located outside of the taffeta lining, rather than underneath it.
