Christian Dior’s Mexico Dress, 1953

By the early 50s, Mexico and Latin America in general were already important markets for Dior.  He showed his collection in Mexico City in 1954 using models he sent over from Paris, and established licensing arrangements with retailers and manufacturers there.  This print was inspired by the Tehuan “resplandor” headdresses which featured a scalloped trim and were made of lace.  Wallis Simpson ordered a version of this dress using the same black-and-white organza fabric for a gown she would wear to the Circus Ball in Paris in 1953.

Mexico Dress makes a nice pair with the Bar Suit or the Athena Dress.

Limited edition signed print 7x12” (framed size 8x13”). Edition of 200. Printed on archival, heavy-weight watercolour paper. Optional brushed-gold wood frame is made in Italy.

Framing takes 4 weeks from the date of the order and framed art is not returnable.
