Suzy Perette

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!

 

Comment

This vintage dress has been carefully looked after and is in excellent condition for its ages, with no notable faults that we could find. The dress is shown with an added crinoline, which is not included in the listing, although the dress fabric itself has a lot of body. Would make a lovely and unique wedding dress.
