Imagine the reaction you would get wearing this vintage Christian Dior Dress, the ultimate LBD. This Christian Dior Dress is a rare vintage find. It's not often I come across a vintage Christian Dior Dress and it is a great thrill to bring it to you. As you can see from the images the dress is simple design. It closes with a zip at the back and is fully lined. It has short sleeves, round neck and falls to the knee. The cream piping off sets the black and showcases the beautiful silhouette of the dress.
The undisputed King of Couture, Christian Dior burst onto the fashion scene on February 12, 1947. He caused a sensation with his "Corolle" line which was famously dubbed the "New Look" consisting of long skirts and nipped in waists. Transforming the couture landscape for the next ten years until his death in 1958.
The New York, London, and Boutique labels are ready-to-wear labels. Until the early 1960s these labels were designed in Paris, first by Christian Dior and, after his death, by Saint Laurent and Bohen. After about 1961 these lines were designed in New York and London by designers hired specifically to do just those lines. The label on this dress is from the 70's as cited by the Vintage Fashion Guild reference guide. Finish your look with a classic vintage ostrich leather bag.
