Now on display at The Pointon Collection of Cars & Costume fabulous original ball gowns, evening gowns & debutante gowns from the 1950's & 60's. Showing from the early '50's the boned bodice with tiny straps & full skirts in gorgeous fabrics plus sophisticated "Marilyn Monroe" style halter-neck and through to the sweet taffeta off the shoulder style. Soft muted shades or bold dark colours—they're all special and the range of fabrics is stunning.

Into the 60's with a continuation of the 50's style & cut but by the end of the era this changes, as do the colours & fabrics, ending with lurex! If you're looking for ideas for the School Ball or a "dress up" night out, come & check out what we used to wear "back in the day".

And of course "Cinderella" went to the ball in the appropriate vehicle, so view our collection of these at the same time. The Pointon Collection of Cars & Costume takes you on a nostalgic trip where everyone "dressed for the occasion".
