Important 1950s Christian Dior Couture Blue & Black Silk & Velvet New Look Dress



Rare and amazing... 1950s Christian Dior "New Look" cocktail evening dress. The dress is exemplary of Dior's new look - it includes a pleated full skirt ending at the calves, a cinched waist, and a fitted bodice. The dress features a sweetheart neckline that gives way to short sleeves, and a rectangular bow in front further accenting the narrow waist. The dress is composed of a sumptuous black silk satin with sprays of brilliant cobalt blue cornflowers underscored by delicately textured cut velvet petals. Couture label is marked "Boutique Christian Dior Paris 149801". Zipper closure. Made in France.
