About

This classic Christian Dior little black dress is perfect for cocktail parties and special events. Constructed in soft silk Dupion, the dress features a plunging neckline and bow detail on the shoulders. A pleated waistband cinches in and accentuates the waist, while the original tulle underskirt adds volume, creating the classic Dior ‘New Look’ silhouette.

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 Simmons.
