1951 Christian Dior Haute-Couture Iconic Asymmetric Silk Dress

Price Upon Request


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 very rare opportunity to own a breathtaking "New Look" cocktail dinner dress from Dior's 1951 fall/winter collection. The garment is fashioned in a gorgeous fully-lined black silk-faille. I love the low-cut plunge fully-boned sweetheart. The nipped-waist asymmetric side-pleated full skirt with a raised hemline is an iconic Dior design of the season, as is the use of side buttons which wrap about the whole bodice. As Christian Dior once said, "Elegance must be the right combination of distinction, naturalness, care and simplicity." This classic dress is a wonderful mix of these elements.
