Christian Dior Haute Couture
1980 S/S Black & White Jacquard Silk Dress
This Christian Dior haute couture short sleeve dress is from the 1980 S/s collection. It's entirely hand-finished and numbered "11635", with a "100% soie" ribbon label. The black and white patterned jacquard silk is unlined at the bodice, and lined in black silk at the skirt. There's a 9.5" slit up each side of the hem and a metal Eclair zipper fastening the back.
The dress presents beautifully but does have a few imperfections: there is a 1.5" x 1.5" light yellow stain near the front hem of the dress that's very discreet due to the reflective fabric, the metal zipper is missing two teeth near the bottom and the zipper pull's paint has chipped. Please see the last two photos for a clear understanding of the condition. We have greatly reduced the price to reflect these flaws. The dress has been professionally dry-cleaned and is ready to wear.
Please note that hem was pinned up by 1.5" in the product photos. It has since been let down without any damage to the fabric.
