Vintage Dior

Vintage Dior

Christian Dior's reputation as one of the most important couturiers of the twentieth century was launched in 1947 with his very first collection, in which he introduced the "New Look." Featuring rounded shoulders, a cinched waist, and very full skirt, the New Look celebrated ultra-femininity and opulence in women's fashion. After years of military and civilian uniforms, sartorial restrictions and shortages, Dior offered not merely a new look but a new outlook.  -  from - The Metropolitan Museum of Art


  1. Dior will forever be the epitome of chic, glamour and elegance to me (alongside with Mademoiselle Chanel, bien sur :) I so love this little collage!

    Hope you are doing well, my dear!
