The items reproduced here thus offer an overview of Dior s life and character as well as his haute couture creations since 1947 always the epitome of modern elegance with the selection taking as its unifying thread the fabric of dreams and the passing on of an aesthetic vision.
Christian Dior was born in Granville a seaside town on the coast of Normandy France in 1904. While his family had hoped that he would become a diplomat Dior preferred art. His preternatural talent resulted in him being hired by Robert Piquet in 1937 and he subsequently worked alongside Pierre Balmain and Lucien Lelong. Dior was an instant sensation after the Second World War. His designs which asserted femininity were a strong rebuke to the utilitarian unisex clothing of wartime Europe and came to symbolize the New Look. Since his untimely death in 1957 an exceptional series of creative directors have imprinted their own style upon the iconic brand.
