1990s Galliano for Christian Dior Pink Silk "Patchwork" Dress

This little number is quintessential Christian Dior during the Galliano years. He was a master at this bias cut full length slip dress and designed them in numerous variation. Here the pink "patchwork" pattern screened onto the silk combined with the ruching details and more structured bodice is quite beautiful. Galliano designed fantasy combined with historical references and during the nineties this bias cut pieces like this where highly coveted, as they still are now. The skirt flows to the floor in a sweep of beautifully bias cut silk. It has a gathered detail along the center that sits above an almost scandalous slit. It hugs the hip and curves up and over the waist. The bust is suspended from tiny silk straps with a full built in interior with built in cups. It is absolutely beautiful and feels very this season once again. Excellent condition
