1963 Christian Dior Haute-Couture Floral Print Watercolor Silk Belted 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. When the talented Marc Bohan took over as head designer in 1960, he continued the Dior tradition of elegant design and this beautiful dress is a wonderful example. The watercolor floral print silk-organza is truly breathtaking! The bodice has a polished wide portrait-collar and tailored short-sleeves. I adore the bow trimmed belted hourglass nipped-waist. Shaped with princess-line seams, the figure flattering cut adds fullness to the skirt without adding bulk in the hips. As Dior once said, "Elegance must be the right combination of distinction, naturalness, care and simplicity." This couture treasure is a wonderful mix of these elements! Measurements Bust:35-36 inches Waist:28 inches Hips:up to 42 inches Total Length:44 inches This stunning Christian Dior Paris numbered 120266 dress is in excellent condition with no rips, holes or stains. Perfectly working hand-set hidden metal zipper. The workmanship is immaculate and all hand-finished. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
