Comments: This original croquis from the designer Christian Dior features the pieces of an outfit from the Autumn/Winter 1976-77 collection, when the house was under designer Marc Bohan. This croquis was made from a xerograph of an original drawing, which was then hand-colored with ink, watercolor, and gouache. The design shows a long, sheer black coat over a shimmery dress. Swatches of the appropriate fabric, one black and the other a pale green, probably another option for the piece, are stapled to the sheet. These sketches were produced in a limited quantity and presented to potential clients in attendance at the Paris Couture shows held by Dior in the spring and fall of each year. This example is in good condition and makes a wonderful document for any lover of fashion.
