A8812 a-1

American Designer Original 8812; ca. 1958; Design by Suzy Perette. Wide Bateau neckline, fitted bodice, banded midriff and very full or Bubble skirt. Not an actual person but the name of a dress manufacturing company that made affordable versions of Parisian designs in the 1950s. The Suzy Perette silhouette of cinched waist and full skirt were extremely popular and a quality interpretation of Dior's famous “New Look." The Suzy Perette Company was located in New York City at 134 W. 37th Street from 1949 to the early 1970s and was a registered trademark of Lombardy Dress (founded as Lombardy Frocks in 1930). The Suzy Perette name was registered by Lombardy Frocks in 1954.
