John Galliano for Christian Dior Dress with Chainmail

About

John Galliano famously ruled the world of Haute Couture at the house of Dior by creating a magical fantasy wold of dressing. One of his many audacious runways included scores of models dressed in phenomenal concoctions which were part gown part suit of armor. These collections were designed as the dreamscape from which the ready to wear collections sprouted. This slinky little crochet number is just this. The body conscious cut of the dress is pure John and the cowl and hem of actual metal chainmail evokes the medieval armor in a much more "amour" and wearable way.
