1990s John Galliano for Christian Dior Fitted Check Dress

From the time period when John Galliano headed the house this is am gorgeous little dress from the main Dior line. It is a wonderful example of how he could be chic and subtle while still executing a sharply cut design. You often see a nod to the fifties and sixties in his work for Dior during this time period and never more so then here with this silhouette. It has that va-voom fitted cut of the fifties and is meant to skim and highlight a girls curves but in the most tasteful of ways. It is so easy to wear and has a delightful retro and feminine feel to it. The fabric choice - a lightweight fine wool & silk mix that allows the dress to hold its shape without having to add any interior structure. It bodice skims over the torso and has pretty pleats at the waist to cinch it in softly. The waist is further defined by the fabric belt shaped into a bow. Excellent condition

Fully lined in a high quality black silk. It closes with a hidden set, back zipper. Tagged a US6, French 38. The fabric belt closes with hidden snaps so it can be easily adjusted if needed for the perfect fit
