The following information is from the vintage fashion guild label resource site & my thanks to them

Born in 1935 in texas - costa sold sketches to ceil chapman and oleg cassini among others before getting starting in bridal design. He joined suzy perette in 1965, where he went to paris and selected models to copy. He left perette in 1973 and returned to texas. There he bought a share of ann murray, and was able to buy out and rename the company in 1974. He produces his own versions of american and french designer clothes in an affordable range, primarily evening wear. His clothes are bright and bold - often patterned or with high contrast. Costa is known for borrowing very closely from other designers.

A stunning vintage evening gown by the fabulous victor costa in deep hot pink & black eyelash lace sprinkled with sparkling sequins

The color is gorgeous & the contrasting black lace is a perfect accompaniment to the hot pink & really sets it off - lovely scalloped neckline dips low with the eyelash lace - sparkling black sequins encrusted on the lace front & back - big puffy sleeves which taper down at the wrists - very full taffeta skirt with an attached net crinoline - a hoop could be added if you wish for more fullness - back zipper

Absolutely gorgeous for the holidays & other formal affairs

By: victor costa
Size: 10
Bust: 39 - 40
Waist: 28 - 29
Length: 59
Fabric: no tag but taffeta & lace
Care: dry clean
Condition: skirt is soiled & needs a cleaning - probably from food which most likely will come out with a cleaning - some shown in photo - it is far enough down that no one would notice especially at night - soiling at the hemline which is to be expected with a long ball gown like this - should come out with a cleaning - the gown will not be steamed before mailing as i usually do because it is difficult to steam taffeta because of water spotting from the steam so i will leave that to your cleaners who is used to working with this type of fabric & will do a professional job on cleaning & pressing
