The Story Behind Dior
Christian Dior, the French founder of the paramount company Dior, is one of the most innovative designers of our time. Dior was born in Normandy, 1905. During the World War II, Dior dressed for military wives and other government spouses. He wanted to preserve the French fashion industry for economic and artistic reasons. His designs revolutionised post-war fashion. In 1946, he started his haute couture empire, House of Dior. Christian Dior Couture stayed away from restricting, boxy designs that hid a woman’s shape.
Instead, fashion house created beautiful flowing garments that enhanced a woman’s curvaceous form. This fashion reform became historically recognised as the "new look". The brand became well known for its haute couture and beautiful luxurious creations since the empire launch. It also expanded into menswear, perfumery, accessories, jewellery and cosmetics. There are now over 200 boutiques all over the world with several located in New York, London and Milan.
