Christian Dior sketching a fashion design, 1948 Featured Print

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

Early woman police sergeant, London Featured Print

Early woman police sergeant, London

An early (possibly the first) woman police sergeant in London, wearing the Stanley Uniform, introduced in 1919. The tunic was single-breasted with six metal buttons down the front and a snake clasp belt. The skirt was mid-calf length. Black woollen stockings were worn, and boots with a one-inch heel. The helmet was made of cork and hard felt. Although Harrods fitted and made the uniform, the material was coarse and uncomfortable. In 1926 changes were made to make it more comfortable and practical. Date: circa 1920s
