CHRISTIAN DIOR by John Galliano Spring 2001 Vintage Silk Lamé Brocade Zippered Evening Dress Size S // Sold

This incredibly glamorous Christian Dior by John Galliano evening gown from Spring 2001 is crafted from a fine burgundy red silk crêpe chiffon that is opulently shot with gold-tone metallic threads that form an ornamental pattern. The bias cut dress is a classic Galliano design, sensual and sexy, with a plunging waterfall neckline and a floor-length skirt.

What makes this dress so extra special is the metallic gold reptile print faux leather zipper that runs from the bottom to the top of the dress, serves as a shoulder strap and extends into two bands that are tied into a bow that sits on top of the shoulder. It is a two way zipper with large signature pendants that may be pulled to wherever you dare and will reveal as much skin as you like - please have a look at the pictures to get an impression of the many possibilities this dress has to offer. 77% polyester, 23% silk, fully lined in 100% silk crêpe chiffon. Made in France.
