2003 Christian Dior by John Galliano Beaded Ivory Silk Flapper Mini Dress
An incredibly chic and well-documented Christian Dior ivory white beaded silk chiffon mini dress. This rare Christian Dior treasure, look #40, from John Galliano's stunning 2003 spring-summer collection is a perfect example of his genius. 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 dress is everything you look for in Galliano era Dior. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; silver toned glass beads, sequins and crystals lavishly adorned on light weight silk in the prettiest ivory white color. The front ascot tie has the most magnificent sparkle with an intensely beaded art deco scalloped pattern. Such a nod to 1920's flapper fashion! The halter bodice with a backless low drape has a captivating allure that I find irresistible. The fitted bodycon mini skirt silhouette has such a flattering shape. This Dior would make a fantastic wedding after party or bridal shower look.
