Croquis Plate 4. Christian DIOR.

Croquis Plate 4

Paris: Christian Dior, 1975.

Ink, watercolor and gouache on xerograph. Fabric swatches and handwritten note attached with staples. Sheet measures 12.5" x 9".

This original croquis from the designer Christian Dior features an outfit from the Summer 1975 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 two figures, one wearing a lavender jacket over a shirt and skirt combination and one without the jacket. Swatches of the appropriate fabrics, pink muslin and lavender jersey, as well as beige jersey and muslin, are stapled to the sheet. There is a handwritten note attached as well which features a brief commentary on the outfit. 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.
