2008 Christian Dior by Galliano Black Silk Beaded Fringe Bias-Cut Gown
An incredibly chic and well-documented Christian Dior black sheer silk beaded bias cut gown. This highly coveted Christian Dior treasure from John Galliano's 2008 spring-summer collection is a perfect example of his genius. Vogue stated about the collection, "Under the guise of twenties-through-forties styling, he laid on a rendering of his signature bias cutting in jazz-age chiffon and thirties charmeuse" and our dress definitely embodies that vibe! 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; double layered sheer silk chiffon with vampy tiered fringe in a stunning deco scalloped design. The intricate beadwork gives the dress a perfect amount of sparkle. Such a nod to 1920's flapper fashion! The effortless thin-strap low plunge bodice has a captivating allure that I find irresistible. The bias-cut construction emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. You will reach for this Dior masterpiece anytime you want to look sensational. A rare wearable piece of fashion history.
