1960s Lilli Diamond Maxi Gown
This Lilli Diamond Maxi gown is the ultimate princess dress! Flattering long sleeve wrap top and ruched waist give way to beautiful panels of flowing pink and purple chiffon.
Lilli Diamond was born in Brooklyn, New York. She left school early to become a vaudeville dancer before heading to Hollywood. A chance meeting changed her life – her future husband Al Diamond spotted her on the street and, according to the Lilli Diamond website, “it was love at first sight”.
Al eventually launched his own label, named for his beloved muse – Lilli Diamond. The label’s signature items were sexy and glamorous cocktail dresses, which were sold all over the US in exclusive shops as well as department stores; Frederick’s of Hollywood being the chief outlet. The label thrived during the 1950s and early 1960s and in 1965 it was sold to Campus Casuals, where it continued into the 1980s.
