This is a massive wedding gown from the 1950s. At that time designers were taking the wedding gown to ultimate levels of grandeur. Grace Kelly's gown was a major influence on top designers. This is a gorgeous wedding gown from the House of Bianchi in Boston. This gown has beautiful styling with the pleated back tucked and gathered at the waistline. The front of the dress is very simple and elegant. The train is heavy and massive. The wedding gown is fashioned of a heavy weight rayon taffeta and lined with interfacing throughout. The closure is a rear metal zip closure, and this works but it needs to be restitched in one small area. There are beautiful taffeta flowers hanging from the side of the waistline. There is a taffeta belt that hooks and snaps in the rear of the dress.
