John Galliano “Toile de Jouy” Bias Cut Gown and Stole


Perfect for exclusive events, this fantastic glamorous John Galliano evening dress is made of refined satin silk, while the matching stole is in light silk. The gown is directly inspired from the traditional body-hugging one-piece Chinese lady dress. Featuring a steel blue “Chinoiserie Toile de Jouy” pattern upon an off-white background, it fastens with 21 fabric covered buttons up the left side and a small zip at the upper front. Unlined, the bias cut slip gown is labelled a French size 40 (US 8) but runs small to size. Originally, the « Toile de Jouy » was a famous French manufacture dating from the XVIIIth century. Its typical prints were mostly featuring little personages scattered in charming landscapes.
