Queen of the Dance

From 50's Rumba to 40's Swing

Gene Marshall
The Couture Touch pays homage to Tim Kennedy's Madra Lord costume "Rio Rumba", circa 1956. Keeping the chevron stripes and those marvelous cap sleeves, the original dress is re-interpreted as a 1940's swing-style ensemble. Ashton Drake's Queen of Hearts Gene Marshall, enhanced with an articulated body from Integrity, is ready to dance the night away. Shoes and handbag are from Robert Tonner's Brenda Starr Collection.

Not only is Miss Marshall revered as the Queen of Hearts, but also Queen of the Dance.
