About

This Dior haute couture wrap dress is a super chic option for a special occasion or black tie event. Constructed in ivory silk, the wrap-style dress fastens with concealed press-studs to the front, and features gold and crystal embellishment to the scalloped edges and hem. With a flattering v-neckline and elongated silhouette this dress makes for a highly contemporary piece that looks fresh and modern.

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.
