1970s Numbered Dior Patron Original Silk Dress Set

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


This stunning cocktail ensemble was made for the mother of the woman this was acquired from. She was a Dior Haute Couture client and this was made specifically for her in Paris and is a one of. It is beautifully made and has couture finishes. Made of layers of fine red silk chiffon the outfit has three pieces - a wrap skirt, a wrap tunic and a long sash. You can wear the tunic over or tucked into the skirt and of course can mix the pieces with other pieces. The skirt is absolutely wonderful. It is as light as air and wraps to close with hooks and snaps along the waist. Under the top layer of gold thread infused silk is a second layer of red silk. It is cut so that as it crosses in the front one layer comes up and creates a pretty effect down the front. The way its moves when you twirl is amazing! The tunic is caught up with hooks at the waist and plunges quite low if you wish it to. It has that same gold edged woven ribbon effect and is also as light as airy as the skirt. A long sash allows you to cinch it in at the waist or you could use it as a hair wrap. It's a touch larger sized but could be adjusted easier because of the simple closures if you are smaller. The tag is numbered. Excellent, appears unworn condition

Both pieces are fully lined in a red silk chiffon. The skirt closes with flat hook and eye & snaps as does the tunic. An inner waist stay sits inside the waist of the tunic. Each sleeve has a small zipper at its cuff.

Note that this will sit on a real girl much better then how it photoed. I don't like to over pin and it is larger then the mannequin it is one. On the right size girl this is wonderful. If you love the photos then buy knowing it is better in person!
