Costa Rica silk taffeta dress
The Christian Dior Haute Couture Spring Summer 1957 collection included dresses named for South American locations such as Caracas and Sao Paulo. This dress, Costa Rica, is a line-for-line reproduction of the original shown in Paris using exactly the same pattern, fabric and construction but made here in New Zealand by El Jay.
