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.
