About this object

Marjorie Merriweather Post required all of her clothing to be expertly tailored and coordinated with matching hats and shoes. Her closets held dresses made by Parisian designers, purchased in luxury department stores, or hand sewn to her instruction by private dressmakers. This evening dress with jacket was purchased from New York luxury department store Bergdorf Goodman. The elaborate hand-sewing of the bugle beads and expert tailoring of the ensemble illustrate the skills of Bergdorf Goodman dressmakers.
