About

The House of Dior has been an enduring icon of Haute-Couture. When the talented Marc Bohan took over as head designer in 1960, he continued the Dior tradition of elegant design. This beautiful goddess gown, which was featured in L'Officiel Magazine, is a perfect example of his talent. The fabric used for this garment is breathtaking; light-weight pale yellow silk organdy. The bodice is a seductive one-shoulder asymmetric design with dramatic side-draping. The attached satin waist-sash with bow gives the garment a very flattering silhouette. I love the maxi length toga style wrap skirt which will totally stop people in their tracks! As Dior said, "I will only say now that elegance must be the right combination of distinction, naturalness, care and simplicity." This timeless dress is a wonderful mix of these elements.
