Buyer Protection Guaranteed

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. The construction of this garment is couture at it's finest! Twenty tiers of bright, white lace cascade down the skirt while under, two layers of stretchy silk-netting rest over a slip of creme silk charmeuse. The elegant bodice fits tight to the body and falls to the hip, creating a slim hourglass look. I adore the flirty flounce of lace over the bust, that is finished with straps of white grosgrain ribbon and lavish bows. As Dior once said, "Elegance must be the right combination of distinction, naturalness, care and simplicity." This classic debutante gown is a wonderful mix of these elements!
