Christian Dior by Galliano Light Pink Silk Slip Dress, 1990s
Since the New Look in 1947, the house of Dior has been a pioneer in classifying and redefining femininity to the masses. Designing for the house for over a decade, John Galliano is famed for his subtly subversive style and sexier undertones, a concept against the grain of traditional Dior. Rather than a full skirt and nipped waist, this late 90s blush silk slip dress is made from a crinkled chiffon.
A delicate feminine cowl graces the neckline providing a softness to contrast the sexier plunging V neckline in the back. Hugging the body through torso to the hips, the underlining ends with a diagonal style line introducing a fully sheer section of the dress decorated with flower details made from chiffon and a pale lace. Although the dress mimics lingerie, the softness of this dress can be elevated with a cropped jacket or carefully curated accessories and you’re ready to hit the town.
Size estimate: Small
Bust: 34 inches
Waist: 28 inches
Hips: 36 inches
Length: 41- 49 inches
