In 1946 after designing for various French fashion houses, Christian Dior launched his own namesake line in Paris. He pioneered the revolutionary style coined New Look by the editor-in-chief of Harper’s Bazaar at the time, Carmel Snow.
The signature shape featured a below-mid-calf-length full skirt, narrow waist and large bust. In its current era, Maria Grazia Chiuri serves as the house’s first ever woman creative director. Chiuri is paving a new path for the world-renowned house, one that sees more casual wear and uses Dior’s inherent femininity to empower women, hence the “Why have there been no great women artists?” and “We should all be feminists” slogan tees that walked down memorable fashion shows at Paris Fashion Week. Chiuri is also known for her romanticism-inspired gowns that feature ethereal tulle skirts, which are now a staple on the red carpet. Discover our Dior collection which includes modern sunglasses.
