Vintage 1940's sensational ' Fred A Block' 2pc suit in a delightful duck egg blue.  This is a stunning set by a well known designer and maker and is a rare find to find the set still together. The suit showcases a classic 1940's American silhouette and oozes Hollywood stylised glamour. The Jacket has a rounded collar and matching button front. It features exquisite beadwork detailing to the yoke and to one of the sleeve edges. The Jacket has a strong shoulder line with additional internal shoulder pads which accentuate that classic and iconic nipped in waist. The skirt is a simple a line shape and fastens with a metal side zip and button fastening to the waist. A great set that can be worn as intended a 2pc or styled with other separates to create varying ensembles.
