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 peachy/pink silk dress is from that collection. The fabric is woven with gold metallic thread in classic Indian designs. The sleeves, waistline and two loose skirt panels are edged with metallic woven ribbon. The dress has a round neckline, exaggerated cap sleeves and a fitted bodice. The overskirt consists of two panels of fabric attached at the waistline. A slim skirt of pink silk is underneath. The dress has a center back zipper and snap closure. It is fully lined and in excellent condition.
