Christian Dior by John Galliano Asian Kabuki "Elvira" Runway Gown - NWT Rare!

About

F/W 2003 John Galliano for Christian Dior Asian Kabuki themed runway gown inspired by the designer's trip to China and Japan. The "Elvira" gown fashioned of a black and white velvet chunky chevron pattern in a three (3) dimensional asymmetric curved silhouette. The use of black shiny eyelash lame in the wide collar and vertical side panel stresses the dress's artificial and fetishistic qualities. The creation designed using vertical and horizontal planes allows the dress to rest on the shoulders like a box or be pushed down asymmetrically creating a strong diagonal form. A distinctive and rare piece already part of permanent museum collections. Condition: new condition with tags; excellent. Size: 36 The red gloves have been added for effect and are not Dior or original to garment. They have been added to mimic the runway presentation (which you may see pictured in the details). Gloves not included in sale.
