1950s Gold Floral & Peacock Brocade New Look Evening Dress


Glorious gold floral brocade evening dress in Christian Dior's "New Look" style. The dress is magnificent, with a full, midi - length skirt that falls at the calves, and a fitted bodice. The bodice is strapless, with a sweetheart neckline accented by petal - like semicircle folds that add additional structural interest to the neckline. The dress pattern is amazing. The golden background plays host to a swirling collection of flowers, berries, and peacocks depicted in an Indian style. Dress shimmers and sways beautifully when worn. Sublime.

The "New Look" silhouette was created by Dior in 1947. The collection was a fresh return to opulence, with sculpted lines, full skirts, wasp waists, and yards and yards of silk.
