Fashion Designer of the Month for Septemebr 2021


Christian Dior is a French fashion designer, best known as the founder of one of the world’s top fashion brands, Christian Dior SE, which is now owned by parent company LVMH. The House of Dior was established in Paris on December 16, 1946.

In 1947, Dior launched his first collection for Spring – Summer 1947 and went down in fashion history as the “New Look” after the editor-in-chief of Harper’s Bazaar, Carmel Snow said, “It’s such a new look!”

The New Look was a revolutionary era for women at the end of the 1940s. When the collection was presented, the editor in chief also showed appreciation by saying; “It’s quite a revolution, dear Christian!”

The New Look became extremely popular, its full-skirt silhouette influencing other fashion designers well into the 1950s, and Dior gained a number of prominent clients from Hollywood, the United States, and Europe.

Some of the famous celebrity ambassadors who have done campaigns for Dior include Charlize Theron, Jude Law, Milla Jovovich, Sharon Stone, Jennifer Lawrence, Rihanna, Johnny Depp, Cara Delevingne, Mila Kunis, Robert Pattinson, Natalie Portman and many more.
