Christian Dior sketching a fashion design, 1948

In 1947 Christian Dior (1905-1957) created a sensational collection labelled the 'New Look.' His designs centred around gowns with an 18 inch waist, which focused attention on the bust and hips. He paired the nipped in waist with a full skirt, using a large amount of material. These designs were seen as luxuriously extravagant because of the rationing that was still in force, following the Second World War. Dior developed his talents through a study of art which included painting, magazine illustration and European architecture.

Wedding of Oswald Mosley and Cynthia Curzon

Wedding of Lady Cynthia Curzon and Oswald Mosley in 11 May 1920, as reported in The Sphere magazine. The left picture shows the bride leaving Carlton House Terrace with her father, Lord Curzon, for the Chapel Royal, St. James's. Middle photograph shows Cimmie posing in her wedding gown. According to The Sphere, 'The corsage of the gown is severely simple. The tight-fitting sleeves reach almost to the finger-tips and the drapery of the skirt is held in position by a long trailing sheaf of arum lilies.' The gown was designed by Captain Edward Molyneux. Right hand picture shows the bride and bridegroom after the ceremony outside the residence of Lord Curzon at Carlton House Terrace where 'the brilliant reception was held.' Date: 1920
