Christian Dior was a visionary designer who helped shape the modern fashion industry. His legacy continues to be enjoyed by luxury fashion lovers around the world. At eighteen, he left France to study at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris and developed his talent for designing couture gowns. In 1945, he founded his namesake fashion house, Dior, with the goal of embracing and developing the latest haute couture designs. Dior’s work for Robert Piguet, designing a short skirt that became an instant hit during World War II, was key to his success.
The iconic brand is renowned for their beautiful feminine styles and continues to offer elegance, femininity, and innovative designs to fashion lovers everywhere. Dior presented its first collection in 1947, calling it “Corolle” after a botanical term for a circle of flower petals. The “New Look” collection they released in 1947 featured more feminine shapes and a more practical yet attractive design. The collection was an enormous success and its designs have continued to be influential for years. Despite being best known for designing women’s ready-to-wear couture, Christian Dior handbags have recently gained a new level of popularity among consumers. The most popular Christian Dior handbags include the Diorama, Saddle Bag and the classic Lady Dior.
