Vintage 1930s French Couture Art Deco Silk Chiffon Dress. Rare and incredible 1930s dress that is likely from Jacques of Chicago as nearly every dress in this estate came from there. Jacques was a high end women's dress shop located at 545 N Michigan in the area that is now referred to as Chicago's mag mile.
The owner's wife went to all the couture shows in Paris and brought back dresses to copy. This practice was fairly common in the 1920s, sometimes the designers sent the dresses to the US in pieces to be assembled here as it was cheaper and. Prior to the 1960s shops sometimes removed the labels in favor of their own but the practice was rare when it came to French Couture, you'd need a healthy ego, as well as a wallet, to take the label out of a Vionnet.It consists of a silk chiffon over dress cut on the bias and a yellow silk crepe silk dress a with a scalloped petal hem. The chiffon overdress has panels at the bottom and split sleeves. There is a blue silk satin cumber band now. Truly one of the prettiest 1930s dresses we've ever had. It is in excellent condition and was just cleaned with no ill effects. This Parisian couture summer tea dress is strong and ready to wear.
