LABEL: Suzy Perette.
Suzy Perette was a New York based clothing manufacturing company that began by making affordable (yet quality) versions of Parisian designs in the late 1940s and throughout the 1950s (made possible through an arrangement between the owner of Suzy Perette and Christian Dior). It operated from the 1940s to the 1970s. Iconic Perette designs remain high in demand by vintage enthusiasts today.
CONDITION: Very good. No notable flaws that we could find on the dress. The jacket has one speck of something below the bottom button (see photos).
