“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 and hidden side seam pockets.  Pair with a jacket and pearls for day, or stilettos with a little sparkle for an evening look.  Made of silk-wool outer, silk habatoi lining in scarlet and lace detail on the inside hem.  Made in L.A.
