Made for the nuptials of Miss Patricia Carin Hirschhorn and Mr. Charles Schine which took place in September 1960, this ensemble represents wedding attire on the grandest of scales. The ceremony took place in the Grand Ballroom of the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City. The style, proportions and details of the gown, including the lengthy train and 19th century rosepoint lace, would have been appropriate to the grandeur of the occasion and the formality of the venue. The dress is similar in decoration and shape to that created by MGM designer Helen Rose for Grace Kelly when she married Prince Rainier on April 18, 1956, an event that made headlines around the world and influenced bridal fashions long after the royal wedding day.

The stark simplicity of this streamlined wedding dress is unusual. A discreet decorative touch is provided by the self-fabric bow, which is placed centrally on the high-waisted half belt. The back of the dress, which falls from the shoulders, recalls 18th century sack-back styles. This dress featured in Victor Stiebel’s final collection.
