Christian Dior Clothing - The New Look
In 1947, Christian Dior created the dramatic "New Look", which dominated fashion throughout the 1940s and 1950s. The "New Look" revolutionized women's dress and re-established Paris as the center of the fashion world after World War II.
The signature shape – characterized by a below-mid-calf length, full-skirt, large bust, and small waist – was hugely popular. The hem of the skirt was very flattering on the calves and ankles, creating a beautiful silhouette. Christian Dior, a true master at creating shapes and silhouettes, is quoted saying "I have designed flower women".
The "New Look", which re-emphasized large busts, was both womanly and sophisticated. Dior continued to be a major force in the fashion world in the 1950s, introducing a new silhouette to the Dior clothing collection each season, including the Princess line of 1951, the "H" line of 1954, and the "A" and "Y" lines of 1955.
Fine dressmaking made a comeback during this period, among women who could afford it, since the construction of the desired shapes required skilled hands.
This custom work, which was less cost-effective and less available, quickly disappeared though, as cheap manufacturing and one-size-fits-all patterns became popular in the late 1950's. Christian Dior died on October 23rd, 1957.
Dior Without Christian Dior
The 1st Christian Dior clothing collection after Dior's death was a sensation. Designed in just nine weeks by the 21 year old Yves Saint Laurent, the clothes were as meticulously made and perfectly proportioned as Dior's in the same exquisite fabrics, but the young designer made them softer, lighter and easier to wear.
In 1960, Saint Laurent was conscripted in the army and, after demobilization, opened his own couture house. He was replaced at Dior by Marc Bohan, who instilled his conservative style on the collections until 1988 when Italian Gianfranco Ferre took over as head designer until 1995.
Since 1996, John Galliano, is chief designer of Christian Dior.Best sellers of the Christian Dior Clothing line are:
