1954 Christian Dior Original Black Silk-Taffeta Asymmetric Ruffle Cocktail 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. Here is a rare opportunity to own a breathtaking 1954 Dior Original designed by Dior himself in France, for the American market, before he passed away. The dress is fashioned in an elegant "light as a feather" silk-taffeta. The bodice is a chic collared mock button-down with lean,long wide-cuff sleeves. I adore the hourglass nipped-waist which is ultra flattering to the figure. The skirting has a breathtaking asymmetric ruffle wiggle construction that emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. As Dior once said, "Elegance must be the right combination of distinction, naturalness, care and simplicity." This classic cocktail is a wonderful mix of these elements. Measurements Bust:35-36 inches Waist:27 inches Hips:38 inches Sleeve Length:23 inches Total Length:47 inches This stunning Christian Dior Original New-York labeled dress is in excellent condition with no rips,holes or stains. Perfectly working back metal-zipper. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
