RARE 1950's Museum Piece "NEW LOOK" Christian Dior Black Dress / Waist 26
🏷 A B O U T
I'm proud to present a true piece of fashion history. Iconic 1950's New Look dress by the creator himself, Christian Dior. This classic Dior design is made of a sturdy and crisp jet black linen and features covered French buttons all down the sides and bodice of the dress. Deep pleats at the front and sides give maximum fullness to the skirt. No zipper is present in order to preserve the lines. Slips on over the head and closes at the side with a series of interior snaps and hook and eyes. The Christian Dior Label is discretely sewn into the side of the skirt. This piece was designed in Paris by Dior himself for his "ready to wear' line. While it is not considered haute couture it does date from the time period when he was designing these pieces.
I would venture to say this piece belongs in a museum, the design is pure "New Look" and the condition is excellent.

Fits like a medium
Label: Christian Dior - New York
Condition: Excellent, freshly dry cleaned and ready to wear. Missing three buttons at the back of the neck, I am assuming the original owner removed them for the sake of comfort, or maybe they were never there in the first place. See picture. Otherwise it's pretty much perfect.
