Early 1950's Dior Beige Silk Robe du Soir

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Pre 1957 Christian Dior beige silk robe du soir cocktail dress. Unique example of one of the first French couture partnerships with a North American luxury department store. All hand stitched. Fitted waist with a slit overlay neckline and half length sleeves. Full tulip faux wrap skirt. Matching slip to be worn underneath. There is considerable wear to the textile and would best suit a collector or institution for display. However this item is still wearable though flawed. Most of the color issues are concentrated on the back bodice and on the inside of the neckline. Discoloration along the waistline and on the backs of the arms. More signs of wear and discoloration on the undergarment as well on the inside of the neckline. Overall dress shows normal signs of wear and is a collector's piece. Fits like a US 4.
