Eleanor Green arrived in the United States in the 1930s from her native Hungary, as a young 21 year old. Within a few weeks she was commissioned to make clothes for an exclusive dress salon. The dresses she made were so beautiful that the owner of the salon kept them for herself. A dress manufacturer, on hearing the story, promptly hired her himself. After a six month stint there, Eleanor finally started out on her own. Her motivation was to design couture quality dresses that were both easy to wear and affordable. The Californian Independent Magazine's article in 1960 said of Eleanor Green - "As an ambassador of fashion and goodwill, at home and abroad, Eleanor Green has no peer. For she creates feminine, flattering styles for every occasion for luncheon in town to cocktails at 7pm and makes them perfect for urban suburban living.  Her idea that high fashion. feminine styling, and popular price could be combined in the same dress - has won her plaudits of women everywhere who appreciate beauty." All the Eleanor Green dresses I've seen over the years have stood apart. Not only truly beautiful in their own right, they also feature unique design twists (such as the petals on this dress) along with superb tailoring. Truly a desirable piece.



This gorgeous dress is in excellent condition for its age, colours are vibrant and the silk fabric is strong.  No notable flaws that I can see. This truly beautiful dress is freshly cleaned and ready to wear. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.
