Designer Alberto Fabiani Italian

Not on view

Alberto Fabiani was a well-received Italian designer, rising to fame in the 1950s. He was known for his classic designs and flattering silhouettes. Interestingly, he married one of his contemporaries, Simonneta Visconti, previously Duchessa Simonetta Colona di Cesaro. Their design ideas were quite diverse, each fulfilling the needs of a different clientele. The ball gown featured here is a wonderful example of his work as well as an accurate representation of the full skirt, popular during the 1950s. Refined in every way, this is a stunning piece, perfect for an elaborate entrance.
