“It’s such a new look!” exclaimed Bazaar Editor-in-Chief, Carmel Snow, about Christian Dior’s debut collection. The hourglass silhouette returned femininity to women’s clothing in the post WWII era and launched a global fashion revolution.
The Carmel is a classic, fit and flare dress with piping detail at the waist. It has hidden side seam pockets that comfortably hold even an iPhone Plus. The outer fabric is a luxe silk wool and it's lined with scarlet silk habotai lining. A delicate lace trim detail can be found on the inside hem.

The fit and flare little black dress has been a wardrobe staple since its introduction in the late 1940s. You can change up the look of this dress with the Coco or Jackie removable collar.
The piping which defines the waist enables you to style the dress on its own or by adding a belt or scarf. Pair with a jacket and pearls for day, or stilettos for an evening look.
