1990s Christian Dior by John Galliano Bias Cut Silk Dress

About

John Galliano's years at the house of Dior ended in scandal but during his tenure there he did arguably produce some of the most amazing bias cut gowns in the houses history. His work, especially the bias cut pieces have a feeling of the decadence and abandonment of the twenties and thirties and they are beautifully cut. They marry the old Hollywood feel of those past eras with the minimalist spirit of the nineties and the results are stunning. This is one such dress and it is beautiful. I love the soft colors - they are a mix of yellow, a pale mint and a pastel tangerine intercepted with black and white and laid out in a graphic chevron pattern that covers the entire dress. It is completely cut on the bias and skims and drapes over the body from the scooped neck to the lower hip. The bottom skirt in set into the body of the dress in a pointed design that both plays off the print on the silk and uses a technique derived from the twenties. The skirt itself is made of payers of silk that float and move around the girl wearing the dress to create a beautiful sense of movement. A tightly spaced row of buttons runs down the side of the dress - a signature of his and this adds to the sense of antiquity to the gown. It is very light and stunning on. It also bears the main Christian Dior label of the time so would have been considered demi-couture as opposed to the Boutique label of this time period. Excellent condition Fully lined in a bias cut off-white silk crepe. It slips on to wear and closes with the series of buttons and fabric loops that run down the side. It appears to have never been worn. The bias cut will allow for a variety of sizes to wear the dress. Note the length does come up when on depending on the size of the girl underneath since it is cut on the bias. Bust: 15-17" flat across from side seam to side seam Waist: 12-15" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: 16-20" flat across from side seam to side seam Length: 60" from shoulder to hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: XS-MED This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free. Thoroughly checked over before shipping, it will be ready to wear upon arrival.
