1980s Christian Dior Off Shoulder Floral Print Dress
The combination of the deep blue combined with the tropical prints give this wonderful little eighties Dior a nod the the forties. That combined with the gorgeous bare shoulder silhouette makes this dress a real little beauty. The collar is accented by a wide flat ruffled edging that circles the shoulders and gives the dress a little bit of a dramatic feel but not so much that you couldn't wear it for either day or evening. The bodice has softly fitted and the waist is nipped in and accented further by a matching belt. The skirt below is a simple pencil that allows that combination of shoulder and print to take center stage. The silk taffeta fabric choice allows for the dress to have it's structured lines and and not feel too flowing or loose fitting. It is exquisite. Excellent condition.
Fully lined in a deep blue silk and closes with a hidden set side zipper. Lightly boned on the sides of the bodice. The matching buckle is on excellent condition. Tagged a US 8
