Detailed Description

We think 1940s dresses are some of the classiest most sophisticated and wonderfully feminine. This dress is inspired by Old Hollywood glamour as the name suggests.

Dorothy O'Hara was a fashion designer at the Paramount Studios during the 1940s and went on to develop her own fashion label well known for it's focus on strong shoulders and a slim hip, using clever draping techniques to enhance and accentuate the female figure.

This 1940s dress by House of Foxy is a tribute to that legend. 

Dress it up for the evening or make it work for daywear, we have shoes, bags and jewellery at Revival Retro to help you accessorise. Don't forget a pair of seamed stockings, a black or natural seam is a good complement but why not go for the matching burgundy seam stockings!
