Molly who identified the Dior dress that yesterday's corselet belonged to. I love the whole bouffant shape and the flowers at the waist. It features a fichu collar, a style that was originally made popular by Marie Antoinette. Interesting how it adapts so well to a late 50s style, isn't it?
I must have seen this dress in the Golden Age of Couture exhibit (since it's in the catalog), but admit that I have no memory of it. I was probably too busy looking at the Bar Suit and Balenciaga suits!
I love being able to put together all the puzzle pieces of this dress!
