I haven't been able to find out a great deal regarding this label although each item I have seen has been impeccably tailored and beautifully styled. I would say it is definitely a lesser known designer label of the same quality, as say, Suzy Perette.



This dress is in excellent condition for its age.  No notable flaws that I can see.  Cleaned and ready to wear. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.
