Fun fact about this mysterious beauty; I found her at an estate sale along with an incredible, authentic Ceil Chapman. The fine silk chiffon, elegant cut, and heavy pleating had me guessing that this might be a Ceil Chapman as well, however, there are no labels in this dress. I also couldn't any reference images of other Chapman designs that looked similar enough, and so, she will remain a mystery. Is she a custom dress, ordered by a lover of Chapman's a look? Is she a high-end knock-off, such as a Suzy Perette? We may never know! What she definitely is is a gorgeous mid-century evening dress in luxurious canary yellow silk chiffon, flaunting the decadent pleating and draping that Chapman lovers are sure to admire!
