About

The epitome of chic, this classic little black dress by Dior is a great example of the ‘New Look’ silhouette. Constructed in silk taffeta, the tulle underskirt adds volume, creating a full skirt and highlighting the small waistline. The high neck at the front of the dress is contrasted by a plunging v-neckline at the back, with a bow detail on the back of the waist. This dress will make a fabulous addition to a modern wardrobe, just add heels and a clutch bag for a party-ready look!

Dior has been at the forefront of taste since its creation in 1947 and following the death of Christian Dior in 1957, the couture house has continued to blossom under its subsequent directors Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano and Raf Simons.
