"Far East to Far West
Interpretation. Western: with the wonderful fresh stamp of California talent."
The above text is from a 1956 ad for this amazing dress by American designer Pat Premo now listed at Damn Good Vintage..
Silky rayon woven fabric...it almost feels like Egyptian cotton.
The textile is slightly textured with horizontal stripes, which Premo felt were more flattering to a woman’s body, in varying shades of burgundy, green and black.
A bit more information on Premo can be found here and here.
