🍈Phenomenal and rare mid 1940's slubbed silk dinner dress by Town & Travel wear for Hotel Waldorf Astoria New York! This is easily one of our favourite finds ever. Absolutely iconic mid 1940's silhouette and glamour. Impeccably tailored with couture details. The strong padded shoulders and tailored silhouette of the dress are offset by beautiful neon and copper sequins decorating the neckline and bust. Done in an Asian-inspired motif, which was very popular at the time, the eastern influence is carried through with the side button fastenings. The skirt fastens with two original metal zippers - a very high-end detail.
The slubbed silk fabric is light, yet drapes beautifully. The perfect fabric for this time of year. Breathable and comfortable as well.
This rare beauty is in overall excellent condition and presents beautifully with minor wear and soiling. Gelatin sequins have been used on this piece which will require special attention when cleaned.

Vintage garments have been previously worn and lovingly cared for. They will likely have general wear and blemishes. We try our best to note any major wear or damages on each garment - although we may sometimes overlook things - which we do apologize for.
Please do not expect all vintage garments to come perfect, unless "MINT CONDITION" has been stated in the description.

Please make sure you check all the measurements of the garment before purchasing. Vintage garment sizes are not the same as those of today. Most vintage garments do not have the stretch or give of modern fabrics. To ensure the best fit, we suggest you measure (twice) a similar garment and compare it to the measurements we have listed.

We cannot offer refunds for fit issues, variances in monitor colors, or buyer’s remorse since these things are out of our control.


We believe the customer does hold some responsibility when purchasing vintage items, and should be familiar with the nature of vintage clothing before purchasing a vintage garment from any online shop.
