1980 Christian Dior Haute-Couture Ivory White Silk Pleated Drop-Waist Dress

About

The House of Dior has been an enduring icon of Haute Couture. While the House of Dior is still a thriving business today, Dior's untimely death in 1957 left the fashion world without a great dictator of style. Christian Dior designed under his own name for only a decade, but his influence is everlasting. When the talented Marc Bohan took over as head designer in 1960, he continued the Dior tradition of elegant design and this beautiful dress is a wonderful example. The ivory-white double layered textured silk used is so fresh and modern! I love the low plunge mock-wrap sleeveless bodice. The figure flattering drop-waist flows into the most gorgeous two-tiered pleated flapper skirt. As Dior once said, "Elegance must be the right combination of distinction, naturalness, care and simplicity." This couture treasure is a wonderful mix of these elements. Measurements Bust:35-36 inches Hips:up to 38 inches Total Length:38 inches This stunning Christian Dior Paris Spring/Summer numbered 12790 dress is in excellent condition with no rips, holes or stains. Perfectly working hand-set hidden side metal zipper. The workmanship is immaculate and all hand-finished. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
