2006 Christian Dior by John Galliano Beaded Burgundy Silk Bias-Cut Gown
Breathtaking Christian Dior beaded floral burgundy silk chiffon bias-cut gown. Dior is probably the best known name in high fashion since the late 1940's. This stunning Christian Dior gown from John Galliano's iconic 2006 fall-winter 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 the detailed floral beadwork mixed with the tiered silk chiffon. Such a nod to 1930's style. The seductive bodice has thin straps and an alluring sheer one-shoulder mesh. This asymmetric sheer mesh give the gown a perfect amount of edge. The flattering bias-cut shape flows to the ground so effortlessly. This construction emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. The body of the dress is lined in the same fabric and there are the Dior signature small self covered buttons along one side. This is the type of gown you will reach for anytime you want to be noticed. A rare wearable piece of fashion history.
