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 for the American market, before he passed away. The dress is fashioned in a stunning dark navy-blue silk faille, which is perfect for any season. The bodice is an alluring low-cut crossover plunge with short sleeves. The hourglass nipped-waist flows into complex pleat work which really dazzles the eye. Just look at that full circle-skirt silhouette with dramatic pockets! As Dior himself once said, "Elegance must be the right combination of distinction, naturalness, care and simplicity." This iconic show-stopper is a wonderful mix of these elements.
