Evening Dress, Sudley House
On display at Sudley Hose.
Evening Dress, Silk Satin with applied diamanté beads and sequins, made by Paquin, Paris, about 1950-55
The Parisian house Paquin was founded by Jeanne Paquin in 1892. After her death in 1936, the business continued under several other designers until it finally closed in 1956. This dress is a typical example of the highly skilled work produced at Paquin and would have been very expensive.
