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 gown is a wonderful example. The vibrant orange course-weave silk linen is truly breathtaking! The seductive low-cut plunge corset strapless bodice is wrapped with unique pleated layering. The narrowing wiggle skirt opens up in back with large, self-covered buttons and welted buttonholes. I adore the dramatic bow-sash which is the perfect nod to Old Hollywood glamour. 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.
