Christian Dior 'New Look'

Monday July 9, 2012

As a couture designer that rivaled Coco Chanel in 1950's, Christian Dior left an impact on modern fashion that can be still seen into today's modern design.

With the launch of his New Look in the 1950's Dior helped to create modern fashion with his new bold voluptuous designs, and the creative use of fabrics that contained a 50-50 blend of cotton and polyester.

Hollywood had a long love affair with designer Dior, whose creations graced film legends like actress Marlene Dietrich and film icon Elizabeth Taylor.
