1990 Christian Dior Haute-Couture Black Velvet Feather Hourglass Fishtail Gown

About

The House of Dior has been an enduring icon of Haute-Couture. While the House of Dior is still a thriving business today, Dior's untimely death in 1957 left the fashion world without a great dictator of style. Christian Dior designed under his own name for only a decade, but his influence is everlasting. When the talented Gianfranco Ferré took over as head designer, he continued the Dior tradition of elegant design. This beautiful feather gown, from this 1989-1990 Fall/Winter collection, is a perfect example of his talent. The fabrics used for this garment are breathtaking; luxurious black silk-velvet with a draped silk-chiffon back fishtail. The dramatic bodice has an exploding feather collar greatly inspired by Marlene Dietrich in Shandhai Express. I love the lean, long zipper-wrist sleeves and hourglass shape. A wonderful nod to traditional femme-fatale construction. As Dior once said, "Elegance must be the right combination of distinction, naturalness, care and simplicity." This couture treasure is a wonderful mix of these elements. Measurements Bust:32 inches Waist:25 inches Hips:up to 35 inches Total Length:60 inches This stunning Christian Dior Paris Haute-Couture dress is in excellent condition with no rips, holes or stains. The workmanship is immaculate and completely hand-finished. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
