A simply stunning and ethereal Christian Dior large-scale watercolor floral silk bias-cut gown. Dior is probably the best known name in high fashion since the late 1940's. This rare Christian Dior treasure from John Galliano's coveted 2001 spring-summer collection is a perfect example of why this couture house has stood the test of time. John Galliano is widely considered one of the most innovative and influential fashion designers of the early twenty-first century. He mingled his references in often surprising juxtapositions to create extravagant yet intricately engineered and meticulously tailored clothes. This gown is everything you look for in Galliano era Dior! The fabric itself is a masterpiece; a bold watercolor floral pattern on three-dimensional velvet flocked ivory silk chiffon. The seductive low-cut scoop bodice has an effortless vibe that I find irresistible. Closes with elegant side covered buttons. Such a nod to 1930's design. The snake embossed leather shoulder straps give the gown a perfect amount of edge. The flattering bias-cut shape with slight back train flows to the ground in a ultra flattering hourglass. This construction emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. This is the type of dress you will reach for anytime you want to be noticed. A rare wearable piece of fashion history.
