1970s Miss Dior Plunging Bright Maxi Dress

This is a fabulous maxi dress that can go from beach to cocktails to dancing! Made from a French nylon it has been dyed a brilliant orange. If you have not encountered a piece in this fabric before - think high end swimsuit fabric! This fabric wears amazingly - you can literally roll it in a ball in your suitcase and wear it with a quick steam as soon as you arrive to where you are going! It can get wet, it always looks right and crisp and it's sexy as hell. A plunging triangle cut halter bodice sits above a high, defined waistline and the skirt falls to the floor in a widening A-line. It's fabulous and it's Miss Dior. Excellent condition!

Unlined and slips over the head. The halter ties at the back of the neck
