Catalogue Note

For comparison see the exhibition catalogue 'Christian Dior : Designer of Dreams', V&A Publications, 2019, p.111. This illustrates a 1960 Yves Saint Laurent for Dior gown currently on exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London. Both that and the present gown are of a very similar cut. The exhibited gown was produced for the Dior boutique in Paris.
