An absolutely stunning black velvet dress from Christian Dior London.
Made around the late 1950's, early 1960's from amazingly lucious black and white textured velvet (potentially fashioned by Bianchini-Férier). Photos don't really do justice to this dress.
The hem is nice and full, pictured here with a petticoat, and the sensual neckline is beautifully enhanced by the fold and button detail
An approx size 8 with 35" bust, 27" waist and waist to hem length of approx 32"
£1,295 inc fully insured mainland UK postage
