Vintage 1970s Miss Dior Skirt Yellow & White Floral Unused Old Stock NWOT Size M
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is an unused skirt made in France under the Miss Dior label, dating to the early 1970s. This came from a lot of old store stock from the 1960s and 70s that I acquired about five years ago, some with tags and some without - included in the lot were a number of pieces by Christian Dior, but also other French fashion houses, all of it unused. The skirt is printed with a floral design in white against a bright yellow background. The skirt closes with a hook at the waist and a nylon zipper at the upper back. It is unlined and flares out to the hemline.
Label: Miss Dior Made in France. The Miss Dior line was introduced in 1967 as a ready-to-wear line targeted to a younger clientele. The line was designed by Philippe Guibourgé, who worked with Jacques Fath and Antonio del Castillo at Lanvin before becoming assistant to Marc Bohan at Dior. He left Dior in 1978 to launch the ready-to-wear line for the house of Chanel. This outfit would have been designed during his tenure at Dior. Miss Dior was made in France for the domestic market until December of 1970, when they started to export to North America.
Fabric: The material label is missing, but this is some type of synthetic knit, probably a polyester blend of some sort
Sizing: No size is indicated - this should fit a medium size, but please rely on the following measurements for fit:
