CHRISTIAN DIOR A5 Postcard Passion Dress
Bring a piece of Haute Couture history into your home with this A5 postcard of the Passion ensemble, designed by Gianfranco Ferré for the House of Dior. The evening ensemble, consisting of a long dress with a train in flame red silk satin, a bustier embroidered with stones and paillettes, and embellished at the waist with fabric flowers, originates from the Haute Couture Autumn-Winter 1989 Ascot-Cecil Beaton collection and today forms part of the Dior Héritage collection in Paris. Ferré's signature style included extravagant and highly dramatic evening gowns and lavish designs, which gained popularity with his client base including high profile individuals such as Sophia Loren, Elizabeth Taylor and Diana, Princes of Wales, among others. As such, the postcard carrying the image of this piece of fashion history well deserves its place in your home, bringing to life the spirit of Dior’s Haute Couture under Ferré’s leadership.
