Timeless Vixen is pleased to offer this iconic gown from the Christian Dior collection of 1967. 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, he continued the Dior tradition of elegant design and this beautiful garment is a wonderful example. The garment is fashioned in a stunning bubblegum pink, fully lined, mid-weight silk. It is easy to see the level of quality in this piece with the inner boned corset structure and hand finishings. The bodice has an elegant ruched one-shoulder design and dramatic side bow. I adore the flattering goddess column skirt which finishes this gown off with the perfect ethereal look. As Dior once said, "Elegance must be the right combination of distinction, naturalness, care and simplicity." This couture treasure is a wonderful mix of these elements.
