1990s Galliano for Christian Dior Velvet Gown

Amazing, amazing amazing entirely cut on the bias gown that you instantly identify without even having to think about it as a dress made during Galliano's period at Dior. Regardless of his recent downfall and appalling behavior he was at one time a pivotal designer in recent fashion history and was lauded with awards and honors based on his ability to cut a dress including the British Designer of the Year in 1987, 1994 and 1995. In 1997, he shared the award with Alexander McQueen, his successor at Givenchy. This gown certainly shows his ability to cut! A ribbed deep chocolate, silk velvet, is entirely cut on the bias in an almost spiral fashion. Curved and angled fabric creates his signature shaping to the body. The bodice drapes in a soft cowl that is slightly offset and the entire dress is suspended by a saddle weight leather strap that buckles into place. Excellent, appears unworn condition. Hand written label inside.

Unlined and closes down one side with a hidden set zipper. Handwritten inner tag.
