Early 2000s Christian Dior by John Galliano Red Silk Satin Bias Cut Dress

During John Galliano's years at the house of Christian Dior he arguably produced some of the most amazing bias cut gowns in the houses history. His work, especially the bias cut pieces that he did, have a feeling of the decadence and abandonment of the twenties and they are beautifully cut. They marry Old Hollywood with the minimalist spirit of the nineties and early 2000s and the results are stunning. This dress is made from a deep red silk satin that is cut completely on the bias. It is very beautiful. The bias cut allows it to skim and drape over the body so that is shows every curve but is not tight at all. The neckline has a deep plunge at the front and the back. It follows the curves of the body under that and flares out after the hips. The skirt is remarkable and cut to hang in long points on either side while it draws upwards at the middle. This, combined with the bias fabric, allows the dress to move around you to create a beautiful sense of movement. A tightly spaced row of buttons runs down the side of the dress - a signature of his and this adds to the sense of antiquity to the gown. It is stunning on. Excellent condition

Unlined and cut on the bias. It is made form a silk satin. It slips on to wear and closes with the series of buttons and fabric loops that run down the side. The bias cut will allow for a variety of sizes to wear the dress. Note the length does come up when on depending on the size of the girl underneath since it is cut on the bias.
