Evening dress

Design House Doeuillet
Designer Georges Doeuillet French

Not on view

Georges Doeuillet began his career as a silk merchant and then found his way to fashion design. He is recognized for his highly detailed and elaborate dresses, which he modeled on live mannequins, a growing trend during the teens. In 1928/1929, after his death, the House of Doeuillet was merged with the House of Doucet.

The evening dress featured here is a glamorous French couture piece and a tour de force of beadwork. Worn by one of New York's society ladies, Mrs. Frederick H. Prince, Jr., this gown would have made a stunning entrance at any social event.
