2002 Christian Dior by John Galliano Striped Stretch Knit Low-Plunge Gown
An ultra seductive and incredibly rare Christian Dior striped knit low-plunge maxi dress dating back to John Galliano's 2002 spring-summer collection. Vogue stated about the collection, "This was not the first time Dior has gone globetrotting, but Galliano injected, as always, new energy into his ethnic excursions. His bias-cut silk and lace dresses, embroidered jackets and sheer tops will work better than ever in this season of unbridled romanticism". This statement reads so true when one looks at this ultra-chic striped gown; one of the most flattering looks I've seen in a long time! John Galliano is widely considered one of the most innovative and influential fashion designers of the early twenty-first century. This garment showcases his mastery of contouring by combined both structure and fluidity in the same garment. The fabric on our Christian Dior maxi dress is sensational! He uses a luxurious fully ribbed stretch jersey knit in the most beautiful ivory, pinky nude and beige color combination. I truly love the low cut front plunge with criss-cross backside and attached sash belt. The supermodel length skirting has beautiful movement but also molds to the body effortlessly when standing still. This construction emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. This maxi dress can be styled for the fanciest of events like a wedding or red carpet or dress is down for a more relaxed resort look. You will reach for this Dior anytime you want to look sensational.
