Christian Dior by John Galliano Runway Skirt Suit, Fall-Winter 1997-1998


From the iconic ready-to-wear Fall-Winter 1997-1998 « Geisha » collection (in that year Galliano was appointed chief women’s wear designer at Christian Dior), this very chic three piece skirt suit consists of a high waist skirt, an embellished top and a jacket in matching burgundy silk fabric. Embroidered faux pearls around the neckline of the top are adding a touch of glamour in this reinterpretation of the traditional Chinese dress.
