Architectural construction of the skirt is very eye catching. Its clean geometrical lines could be a focal point of every outfit. Very unusual design, fitted close to the body in the upper part and fuller below the knees. Geometrical inserts give a fullness to the skirt and ties from straps of the same fabric hold the folds in place.
Christian Dior Haute Couture evening dress and jacket ensemble named Teheran from spring/summer 1962 by designer Marc Bohan. Made from silk with dazzling beaded embroidered glass and bead on the bodice of the dress. #Christian #Dior #Fashion House of Dior.
