Christian Dior NY Documented Pink One-Shoulder Silk Chiffon Grecian Gown, 1957

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. Here is a rare opportunity to own a breathtaking 1957 gown designed by Dior himself in France, for the American market, before he passed away. The dress is fashioned is a stunning "light as a feather" coral-pink layered silk-chiffon. I love the one-shoulder grecian goddess bodice. The draped asymmetric skirt detailing really brings this garment to a new level. You can wear the matching shawl-wrap to really showcase the drama of this masterpiece. As Dior once said, "Elegance must be the right combination of distinction, naturalness, care and simplicity." This classic tea-gown is a wonderful mix of these elements. Measurements Bust:31 inches Waist:24 inches Hips:35 inches Length top to high-waist:8 inches Length waist to hem:41 inches This stunning Christian Dior labeled gown is in excellent condition with no rips or holes. The inside is fully-boned. After close inspection, we found a few minor watermarks and pulls to the silk which are not noticeable when worn. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value. Wonderful condition and a true rarity.
