An absolutely incredible and ethereal Christian Dior boutique dress under Galliano. Incredibly well-made, the bodice has a built in bra which flatters the bust and is bias cut, which flatters almost all figures. Just below the hips it flares out into an outrageously full, ice blue silk taffeta skirt with a long, dramatic train - so worthy of the red carpet or the most elegant evening event. An excellent example of Galliano's work for Dior with his signature bias cut fabric and his penchant for extravagant, attention grabbing designs.

- Made in France
- Fastens at the side with covered silk bridal buttons
