WASHINGTON. THE HOT PINK AND GOLD DRESS. JACQUELINE KENNEDY. OOAK

Posted in Uncategorized at 7:23 pm by arinafashions

Evening dress and cape in hot-pink-and-gold silk organza and metallic-brocaded silk organza, trimmed in olive silk velvet ,1962. Benefit perfomance of the musical Mr.President for the Joseph P. Kennedy Jr.Foundation, National Theatre, Washington, D.C. , September 6, 1962. During his February 1962 visit to the White House, King Saud of Saudi Arabia presented the first lady with a length of magnificent silk brocade. She had this fabric made into an evening dress by A La Carte, a fashionable Manhattan boutique, whose designer Joan Morse was noted  for the flamboyant clothes she made from fabrics collected on her word travels.

I have accomplished a big chunk of work to reproduce this fashion. The fabric drawing was done manually by “000” brush. I used a special fabric paints including gold and silver one.

This OOAK fashion includes the  dress, cape, earrings, gloves and purse (opening).

It is fully lined.

$450 shipped   SOLD

It does not include the doll, shoes or background.

    This is one of my favorites of Jackie Kennedy’s White House year’s gowns. The pattern on the capelet and skirt are gorgeous and so unique with the gold & silver brocade details. This would be Katrine’s “jewel in the crown” if she was able to find similar 1/6 scale fabric for this AMAZING look !!
    Thanks for sharing 😉
