Circa 1929 silk Evening Dress, Bergdorf Goodman (American, founded 1899): "Beginning in 1914, Bergdorf Goodman began to introduce ready-to-wear, making it the destination for leading American and French fashions. This dress, complete with an early Bergdorf label, is special for its visual appeal. The design of the front of the dress is quite different from the back, showing the transition from the tubular silhouette of the 1920s to the more fluid silhouette of the 1930s."
