CHRISTIAN DIOR PARIS
Vintage Numbered "Haute Couture"
PRINTEMPS-ETE 1966No. 131798
Collectible silk dress in a vibrant Bright French Rose hue from Christian Dior's Haute Couture Spring/Summer 1966 collection.
The "MOD"dress is made of an exquisite thick luxe silk fabric and is fully lined in a delicate light-weight silk.
Bow in back with a metal Eclair zipper, hidden hook-& eye & snap closure.
All originaldelicately hand-sewn stitch work can be seen on the inside finshing seams of the dress.
The dress even features "WEIGHTS" that are hidden and sewn in the bottom lower interior hem of the dress that help keep the dress in a perfect hanging position when worn.
The labelon the inside reads ....
"PRINTEMPS-ETE 1966 CHRITIAN DIOR PARIS 131798".
The dress does have obvious signs of wear & damage
from poor storage over the almost 50 years.
1) Stains, spots, marks throughout (we have pointed out major stains in the pictures attached). Perhaps if willing to make the investment the dress can be dyed to cover up the marks, stains.
2) There is obvious fraying/tears on the neck/collar of the dress.
3) Obvious wear with very small tears/fraying at bottom hem on fold.
Review all pictures in the listing to see damagethat we described to the best of our ability.
Considering exterior damage, the inside lining is still in good condition with no tears or rips.
Although the exterior fabric shows signs of wear with marks, stains, blemishes, fraying/very thin tears, the construction of this is still amazingly all there.
The dress is being sold "AS-IS"as it is obviously NOT MUSEUM QUALITY or ready for wear as it is currently in a semi-damaged state. With work, the dress could possibly be restored to its original beauty as the structure and original design are clearly all there.
All the damage unfortunatley came from not being properly stored over the almost 50 years in a New York City Upper East Side brownstone that was owned by a glamorous well travelled socialite's estate.
Even with all of the flaws, we believe the Mod Original Silk Dress is still a very collectible piece for the right Dior lover and those who appareciate fashion history.
That someone may want to study the hand sewn stitch work, examine the vintage silk fabric used and look at the pattern work of the dress for teaching and or studying purposes as this would be a wonderful teaching tool for any fashion enthusiast.
An expert may even want to restore it as it isstill truly a part of Fashion Historythat needs to be seen by the world for years to come!
