The Suzy Perette label was a registered trademark of Lombardy Dress (founded as Lombardy Frocks in 1930) and registered in 1954. A sister label to Suzy Perette was the Gigi Young Fashions label (late fifties to 1966). This label followed the same successful style formula of Suzy Perette but as a less expensive line.
Suzy Perette was greatly influenced by Parisian fashions, with the silhouette of cinched waist and full skirt extremely popular in the early fifties. In fact, the Suzy Perette label acquired the right to incorporate Christian Dior's designs into their own product range- and this dress is a wonderful example!
This beautiful dress is in great vintage condition for its age without major blemish. Perhaps a couple of scuffs but hardly noticeable. The silhouette is an iconic one for this label but in a rare colour and fabric combination. And a hard to find larger size. Shown with a crinoline for presentation purposes only.
