Vintage 1968 Christian Dior Couture London Stripe Silk Pleated Drop-Waist Dress

$1,200

About

The House of Dior has been an enduring icon of Haute Couture. While the House of Dior is still a thriving business today, Dior's untimely death in 1957 left the fashion world without a great dictator of style. Christian Dior designed under his own name for only a decade, but his influence is everlasting. When the talented Marc Bohan took over as head designer in 1960, he continued the Dior tradition of elegant design and this dress is a wonderful example. The "light as a feather" red, white and blue graphic striped silk fabric used is truly breathtaking. The bodice has an elegant mock turtleneck with tailored short sleeves. Shaped with beautiful pleatwork, the flattering drop-waist swing adds fullness to the skirt without adding bulk in the hips. As Dior once said, "Elegance must be the right combination of distinction, naturalness, care and simplicity." This unique numbered couture dress is a wonderful mix of these elements! Measurements Bust:33-34 inches Waist:26 inches Hips:up to 36 inches Total Length:40 inches This stunning Christian Dior London numbered 37785 garment is in excellent condition with no rips or holes. Perfectly working hand-set zipper and couture finishing. Only sign of age are a some faint surface spots which get lost in the print. Please message for detailed pictures. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
