Vintage 1950s Emma Domb Wedding Dress, 50s Wedding Gown, White Lace and Tulle Sweetheart Wedding Gown with Bolero Jacket and Train


Incredible vintage 1950s white lace and tulle wedding gown and bolero jacket by high fashion designer Emma Domb! In near excellent condition, she will not disappoint. The gown is styled with a sleeveless scalloped sweetheart neckline with princess seams, piped nipped waistline and wonderful floor length skirt with back train featuring a shortened scalloped lace tier, followed by two layers of tulle net with the innermost taffeta type lining. She closes with a side metal zipper and top eye/hook. The gown is labeled "Emma Domb California".

The bolero jacket is sweet as can be made of sheer net and lace. She's styled with a lace collar neckline that's stitched down on one side with faux pearls, fabric covered button and loop closures down the neckline with an eye/hook at waistband. The lace sleeves have pointed hems and 3 button and loop closures. The bolero is also labeled "Emma Domb California" however the placement confuses me. Because of the label placement I photographed the gown with the bolero possibly on backwards. Either way I think it looks great but now I'm thinking the cute collar detail should be on the front.

Truly a magnificent vintage wedding gown from a sought after designer from the era.
