Croquis Plate 108

Paris: Christian Dior, 1973.

Ink, watercolor and gouache on xerograph. Fabric swatch attached with staples. Sheet measures 13" x 9".

This original croquis from the designer Christian Dior features a dress from the 1973 summer collection. 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 short navy dress with extravagant frills and pleats. A swatch of the appropriate fabric, navy muslin, is 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.
