1970s Numbered Couture Silk Dior LBD

This 1970s numbered Christian Dior piece is extraordinary. Made of black silk chiffon it has a decidedly female, romantic feel and takes the concept of the little black dress to new levels! The silk has a slight texture to it and it is fully lined in a tissue silk all hand finished to perfection. It feel wonderful when worn! The bodice is simply cut which allows the extravagant ruffles to take centre stage. The V neckline as a dramatic ruffle that falls to the waist - it appears to be tiers but it is really just the excess amount of fabric used to contrast that ruffle that gives it that appearance. The ruffles are made form a tiny knife pleated band with two edgings of gathered silk at the end. The same ruffle adorns the cuffs and the he. The entire skirt is knife pleated and very full, though it does sit over a lean under skirt. The effect is lady like, sexy and high end with a fabulous bit of movement and airiness to it when worn! A superb example of couture Dior and it is in excellent condition.
