Tassell Short Evening Dress

Gustave Tassell designed for Hattie Carnegie in New York and Jacques Fath in Paris before opening his own business in California in the late 1950's.  Jacqueline Kennedy wore his clothes during her White House years.  Tassell was a Coty Award winner in 1961.

This elegant, vintage, strapless evening gown in black silk is typical of his designs.  Great fabric and great workmanship combined with spare and elegant design.

There are seven vertical seams in this dress, that is all Tassell needed to create this clean lined, modern garment.  The bodice is fully lined and has an interior zipper as well as ever so slight padding in the bustline.  There is another center back zipper and the dress is fully lined in black silk.

This timeless garment is labeled Tassell for I.Magnin, and it is in pristine condition.
