Icons of Design - Christian Dior

Christian Dior began his fashion career in 1947. Realizing the world was ready for something new after the war he delivered his “New Look” which featured soft, rounded shoulders and cinched waists with flowing skirts. By 1953 he had taken on future design icons Yves St. Laurent and Pierre Cardin as assistants.

Dior was one of the first in the fashion industry to expand his brand and begin marketing furs, socks, ties , perfumes and clothing under the Dior name. After his death, the house was taken over by St. Laurent until 1960 when Marc Bohan took the helm bringing his particular conservative style. John Galliano then took over design duties in 1996 and has infused the House with whimsy as well as his impeccable romantic style. Luxury, romance and clean lines define this style…here a few items we feel epitomize the feel of Dior…
