Christian Dior

Christian DiorChristian Dior (1905 to 1957) was a legendary fashion designer, who was born in northern France in 1905. His most influential years were in 1940s and 1950s. After Great Depression and The World War II Dior reintroduced a gentle woman's beauty and femininity to the world, and made his main focus on luxury to women's fashion. Dior's first couture show was in 1947, featuring the collection of luxurious clothes with soft shoulders, waspy waists and full flowing skirts intended for what he called “flower women", which in the post-war era gained a title of a New Look. Christian founded one of the world's top fashion houses, also called Christian Dior.
In 1955 19-year-old Yves Saint Laurent became Dior's design assistant. Two year after Christian died of a heart attack. Dior’s funeral in Paris was attended by more than 2,500 people. Yves Saint Laurent was named as Dior’s successor and continued work.
Later on, in 1989 Gianfranco Ferre was made a stylistic director of Christian Dior fashion house. In 1997 John Galliano became a creative director at Dior and held this position till 2011. Dior fashion house still remains one of the best-run haute couture houses in the world.
