1999 Christian Dior by Galliano Sapphire Blue Eyelash Silk Bias-Cut Gown
A well documented and totally timeless Christian Dior sapphire blue eyelash silk bias-cut gown from John Galliano's iconic 1999 fall-winter collection. John Galliano is widely considered one of the most innovative and influential fashion designers of the early twenty-first century. He mingled his references in often surprising juxtapositions to create extravagant yet intricately engineered and meticulously tailored clothes. This gown is everything you look for in Galliano era Dior! The fabric itself is a masterpiece; mid-weight eyelash patterned silk in the most stunning sapphire blue color. The gown has a gorgeous iridescent quality to it as the textile hits different lighting. As shown, the dramatic sculpted asymmetric collar can be styled different ways. I love how it flows into an impressive backless design. The gown has a flattering bias-cut and hits the ground in a hourglass mermaid shape. An unforgettable red carpet look that you will reach for anytime you want to feel sensational. A rare wearable piece of documented fashion history.
