The Aida

1950s Havana by Gretchen Dawley

V-Neck, Floor Length

This gown is inspired by Aida Diestro who was a Cuban pianist and arranger. She organized the vocal quartet, Cuarteto d’Aida made up of salsa powerhouses Elena Burke, Moraima Secada, Omara Portuondo, and Haydée Portuondo. She started the group in 1952, and by the time of the Revolution, her singers were performing in the most elegant cabarets in Havana. This silk crepe fit and flare gown w/ plunging style lines featuring a soft flounce along the neckline embodies the real Aida with strong lines and soft, romantic ruffles.
