Fashion historian about Dior dress
London-based fashion historian Henry Wilkinson, who specializes in researching and restoring vintage fashion, relied on the label to suggest that it was an early piece by Christian Dior, while other details provided additional clues.
The silhouette of the hourglass was reminiscent of his revolutionary "New Look" that began in 1947, Wilkinson noted.
The zigzag embellishment of the vintage strapless dress led him to conclude that the dress was from Dior's fall/winter 1949 collection, when the clothing was still designed by the founder himself. Wilkinson also noted that a similar design was exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in 1986.
Intrigued by the dress's history, Wilkinson contacted the girl on Instagram and, after revealing the dress's history, advised her to insure it.
“Henry advised me to evaluate my grandmother's dress and put me in touch with the Kerry Taylor auction in London. In its current state, the dress costs between $36 and $700,” she said.
