Christian Dior was another French designer who was one of the fashion icons in the 1950’s. His rose to fashionista fame was interesting. The designer was supposed to inherit the family interests in the fertilizer business. He went to school in Ecole des Sciences Politiques.
His inkling for fashion started out when he worked in Pairs for Robert Piquet in 1938. During the World War II, he was one of the men who were asked to serve the country. After his service, he went to establish his own fashion house under a label or brand which he called Christian Dior New York, Inc. One of his first designs was called the “New Look” which was an instant hit among the women. This was a design which portrayed the style of women post-war – loose skirts, round shoulders, feminine silhouettes, beautiful fabrics and a style of luxury traded for those of modesty and comfort. Due to his designs, Dior became famous among Hollywood stars such as Rita Hayworth. He then added more products to his product lines such as bags, perfumes, and other accessories.
Dior also acknowledged, discovered and gave way to designers who would eventually find their own fame in the fashion world, such as Pierre Cardin and Yves Saint Laurent, designers who eventually started out their own businesses. When Dior suddenly died in 1957, Yves Saint Laurent was appointed to head the luxury fashion company. After Saint Lauren, Dior’s creative section had also gone through the hands of other designers such as Gianfranco Ferre and Marc Bohan. Currently, Dior is owned by the Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy. In 1996, Dior has since been led by its chief designer John Galliano.
