About Christian Dior…..

(1905 – 1958) Christian Dior was one of the most influential designers of the 20th Century. From 1941 – 46, Dior worked at Lucien Lelong. While there he attracted the attention of textile maker Marcel Boussac, who became Dior’s financial backer.

In the spring of 1947, Dior showed his first major collection, the “Corolle” line, which came to be known as the “New Look”. The “New Look” was made up of long, full skirts and a nipped-in waist that called for the use of a corset. Dior continued to be a major force in the fashion world in the 1950s, with a new silhouette each season, including the Princess line of 1951, the “H” line of 1954, and the “A” and “Y” lines of 1955.

After Dior’s death in 1958, his assistant, Yves Saint Laurent, became the head designer at Dior.
