Fabulous Spring 2004 Christian Dior by John Galliano Three Piece Pink Silk Chiffon Set

John Galliano went from Givenchy to Dior in October of 1996 and stayed there until he was dismissed in February of 2011. During John Galliano's years at the house of Christian Dior he arguably produced some of the most amazing bias cut dresses in the house's 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 is an amazing example of his work from the Boutique line and it is gorgeous

This is actually a three piece set which makes it very versatile. It has a huge impact when you wear all three pieces together but you can also mix and match them so that you can spread a little Dior over your existing wardrobe. The strapless top is actually a corset that is lightly boned inside and finished with lingerie netting on the interior. The exterior of it is covered in a light fine silk jersey in a bubble gum pink. It zips to close with a sweetheart neckline at the front and is gathered in between the breasts. This tops a long skirt that flows to the floor in dramatic layers. The inside layer is a solid deep dusty pink and then over that is the beautifully printed silk chiffon. The silk is all beautifully cut on the bias. It skims over the hip and separates into panels of silk cut different lengths and on different angles. The lightness of the fabric and this car wash feeling hem give the skirt incredible movement when you move. The set also comes with its original matching shawl that is made from a single layer of the silk chiffon and is very wide. At each end of the scarf it is finished with very long hand tied pink fringing. This can be wrapped around the hips, worn over your shoulders, around the neck or worn as a headpiece. It is absolutely beautiful. Excellent condition

The top is fully lined in pink cotton netting and is fully boned with interior built in cups. It closes with a zipper at the side The skirt closes with a row of tightly spaced fabric covered buttons at the side and is lined in a pink silk that follows the shape of the pieces of the skirt bottom. The corset is tagged a US6, FR40, GB12
