Tina Leser Original

Tina Leser was born in Philadelphia in 1910 and traveled the world with her parents. She opened her first boutique in Honolulu as a newlywed in 1935.

Her clothing designs and fabric choices were definitely influenced by her exotic life. In the 1950's she designed clothing using Indian Sari fabric for the garments. This pale green and gold silk dress is from that collection. This dress is made form a sheer silk organza shot through with gold as well as gold motifs in a classic Indian design. The dress is sleeveless with a fitted bodice and a long slim skirt. The self belt snaps and hooks under the fixed bow and it is attached to an overskirt in the back. This sheer panel is edged with the border pattern of the sari. {there are a few small pale spots on the lining only of this panel at the bottom corner} The dress has a center back zipper and it is fully lined in silk. It is in excellent condition.
