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. Here is a rare opportunity to own a breathtaking 1957 Christian Dior Demi-Couture "Jalouse" design by Dior himself for his Paris boutique, before he passed away. Garments with this rare hand written tape labels are couture made for clients who could not go in for multiple fittings. The ensemble is fashioned in a stunning black and red roses floral print silk ottoman which is perfect for the holiday season. I love the low-cut button down plunge with slight cap-sleeves. The hourglass belted nipped waist met by the full pleated swing-skirt frames the perfect New Look silhouette. As Dior himself once said, "Elegance must be the right combination of distinction, naturalness, care and simplicity." This iconic show-stopper is a wonderful mix of these elements.
