Helen Rose

Helen Rose
Helen Rose has been in the news lately, with her stunning wedding gown for Princess Grace being so influential. Helen Rose was known for her softly feminine designs, and this is one that captivates her style. It is a weightless silk chiffon made with impeccable workmanship. The very modest bodice and sleeves are given drama with a swirling, soft pleated skirt. The design accent is a wrapped chiffon sash in scarlet, brown, and the self beige color. It's genius for the subtle red 'pop' toned down with the chocolate. Who would think of that color combination today? Yet it works perfectly.

Label:"Robinson's, California", a Southern California department store.
