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!



Suzy Perette dresses are so sought after and one can see why with this stunning example. Undoubtedly a Christian Dior design with its amazing structure and style. It is really in excellent condition other than one small repair to the right hand fold near hemline - obviously caught in something as fabric is strong. See last photo for details. Perhaps some light discolouration to the lining but of no consequence to the presentation of this sensational dress. Nevertheless priced accordingly. Cleaned and ready to wear.
