I am about to post this amazing dress to the VFG Instagram page and I wanted to do more research about it. It is a 1952 dress named "Vilmiron" by Dior. This spelling is repeated all over the internet (therefore it is correct, right ? ) I wondered if it was a vocabulary word I didn't know, or a place in France? There is a long-time seed company in France called Vilmorin. Louise de Vilmorin was an heir to that seed company and she had quite a biography - she was an author engaged to novelist and aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry; at one point. She married Jessie Hunt, who owned most of Las Vegas. She next married Paul Pálffy ab Erdöd (a Hungarian playboy.) It was his fifth marriage. She was then a mistress for a number of men and spent the last years of her life as the companion of the French Cultural Affairs Minister and author André Malraux. So I'm assuming it's a typo? Amazing what you can find online.... There is a piece, "Dior Before Dior" that Google says mentions Louise de Vilmorin, but I can't access it. Someone else take the next step?
