1975 Christian Dior Haute-Couture Beaded Peach Silk-Chiffon Cocktail Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

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 pastel peach cocktail is a perfect example of his talent. The fabric used for this garment is breathtaking; beaded, sequin, rhinestone "light as a feather" triple layered silk-chiffon. I love the low-cut plunge neckline and grecian-goddess capelet caftan bodice. As Dior said, "I will only say now that elegance must be the right combination of distinction, naturalness, care and simplicity." This haute-couture dress is a wonderful mix of these elements.
