Christian Dior Haute Couture Red Beaded Silk Chiffon Kimono Sleeve Dress, 2003

About

Christian Dior is probably the best known name in high fashion since the late 1940's. This breathtaking garment from John Galliano's iconic 2003 collection is a perfect example of why this couture house has stood the test of time. Made of ruby-red silk chiffon; it has a seductive vibe that takes the concept of an evening gown to new levels. The hourglass silhouette is designed to flatter the figure at every angle. I love the avant-garde kimono sleeves that are hand embellished with sparkling beadwork and sequins in a unique floral motif. The semi-sheer mermaid flounce skirting finishes this dress off with an alluring femme fatale vibe. "A dress is a piece of ephemeral architecture, designed to enhance the proportions of the female body." Christian Dior Measurements Bust:32-33 inches Waist:27 inches Hips:35 inches Total Length:52 inches This vintage Christian Dior Haute-Couture 32801 numbered evening gown is in excellent condition with no rips,stains or holes. The garment closes with a back-zipper and is all hand-finished. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
