2001 Christian Dior by John Galliano Gold Lace & Pink Silk Bias-Cut Gown
Breathtaking Christian Dior metallic gold lace and mauve pink silk chiffon bias-cut gown. Dior is probably the best known name in high fashion since the late 1940's. This stunning Christian Dior documented runway gown from John Galliano's iconic 2001 spring-summer collection is a perfect example of why this couture house has stood the test of time. 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! I love bold deco patterned metallic lace mixed with the mauve pink semi-sheer silk chiffon. Such a nod to 1930's design. The seductive low-cut plunge bodice with duel satin straps has a lingerie vibe that I find irresistible. The gold grommet trim gives the gown a perfect amount of edge. The flattering bias-cut shape flows into a stunning side slit. This construction emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. This is the type of gown you will reach for anytime you want to be noticed. A rare wearable piece of fashion history.
