'Vintage MEXICAN DRESS White Lace Red Velvet - MAXI - BOHO- Hippie Festival - sz12 - Designer: Charuhas

Gorgeous 1960s-70s Mexican wedding dress designed by Georgia Charuhas, Merida Yucatan, Mexico! This beauty is made of 100% cotton and features pintucking, tons of lace trim, bell cuffs, and red and pink velvet trim! Flattering deep V neckline!

The dress is NEW WITH TAGS. It has never been worn or washed. There are a few minor flaws from storage: the back of one elbow has 2 super faint yellowish spots (see photo below) and one shoulder has a series of dark pin sized dots - these may come out with a little work - I have not tried to clean them.

About the Designer:

In the Sixties, Georgia graduated from the Chicago Art Institute. She married soon thereafter, and spent the next few years traveling and painting. One of her trips took her to visit some friends in Puerto Vallarta. The friends were living in a house next to Elizabeth Taylor. Georgia says those were heady times in Puerto Vallarta, right after the filming of the “Night of the Iguana”. The Hollywood elite, Georgia and many others were just discovering the beauty and allure of tropical Mexico. Georgia ended her marriage in the United States, moved to Mexico and never looked back. Eventually, she left Puerto Vallarta for a quieter place, and she ended up in Merida.

People who lived in Merida then say that when Georgia Charuhas moved to Merida, the traditionally conservative society was shocked by the presence of a young American woman living on her own in a foreign land. She was a beautiful woman and an outspoken one, and she caused quite a stir, especially when she was raising and riding her horses on the beach in Progreso or running her own clothing company based on her original designs. Georgia’s dresses, based on Mexican designs but with a gringa’s sensibility, sold all over the States, including in Bergdorf Goodman’s in New York City.

Georgia eventually married again to Mexican gentleman who was later killed in a tragic car accident in front of the furniture store they owned together in Cancun. Now Georgia lives alone, with 14 cats and 5 dogs (she helped start the AFAD animal shelter that we chronicled earlier). She spends her days painting and managing her store at the entrance to the Mayan archaeological zone of Uxmal.
