1954 Christian Dior Lifetime Navy-Blue Silk Heavily Ruched 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 stunning 1954 Dior Original designed by Dior himself in France, for the American market, before he passed away. The dress is fashioned in a luxurious mid weight navy blue silk-faille. The bodice has an elegant scoop neck short-sleeve design with rhinestone accented buttons. I adore the heavily ruched hourglass nipped-waist which is ultra flattering to the figure. The skirt has classic pencil skirt tailoring which 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 timeless dress is a wonderful mix of these elements. Measurements Bust:35-36 inches Waist:28 inches Hips:38 inches Total Length:44 inches (additional hem allowance) 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.
