1965 Christian Dior Haute-Couture Chic Yellow Pleated-Silk Belted Dress

About

The House of Dior has been an enduring icon of haute couture. When the talented Marc Bohan took over as head designer in 1960, he continued the Dior tradition of elegant design. This vibrant sunshine-yellow dress from Spring 1965 is a perfect example of his genius. I love the asymmetric scarf-neck and hourglass nipped-waist. The structural pleating really gives the garment depth and texture. As Dior once said, "Elegance must be the right combination of distinction, naturalness, care and simplicity." This unique silk dress is a wonderful mix of these elements.
