John Galliano for Dior working Toille from his Archive

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This piece was purchased directly from John Galliano's archive in Paris upon his ousting from Dior. He needed to streamline things and thus a sale was held. There is of course no label sewn into this piece as it was used as a working toille to develop a pattern. There are hand written notations on the fabric which attest to this. There is a printed label reading "John Galliano Archive" with an inventory number written on it pinned to the garment. This is a rare piece of fashion history where one can see his masterful eye frozen in the creative process.
