This Christian Dior 1950s silk evening dress of textured silk in pale gold has magnificent construction. Forward folding pleats have been tailored  to form a gorgeous fan shaped bodice. Pleats continue down the length of the dress and are stitched over the navel, opening out into the flared ankle length skirt with an impressive forwards thrusting dynamic. The reverse of the skirt features a single inwards facing pleat that lifts the dress over the buttock to flattering effect, accentuating the feminine waistline. The bodice is cut horizontally with half moon shaped panels on either side to protect modesty with 2" shoulder straps. The accompanying shawl which can be detached if desired, ruched at the front on either side so that the shawl stands away from the shoulders at the front. Swarovski crystal buttons affix the shawl on either side of the bodice. There is a central zip fastening at the reverse.  Would best suit US size 2 - 4, UK size 6 - 8.

BUST - 32 in. (81 cm)

WAIST - 25 in. (64 cm)

HIP - 32 in. (81 cm)

LENGTH - 37.5 in. (95 cm)

This exceptional piece is in overall excellent vintage condition; however, it should be noted that there are some very pale watermarks on the lower part of the skirt at the front, and some minute damage to the fabric on the inside hem that is not visible when worn. We also believe that the dress may have been altered as the hem has been taken up at some point. That said, the workmanship matches the skill with which the garment was manufactured. Priced accordingly and still a truly remarkable piece which would be an excellent alternative bridal dress.
