Christian Dior started his fashion house in Paris in 1946 after the war. With a background in architecture, he trained as a dress designer before embarking on as a designer. He revolutionized the convention of elegance of the time with his new silhouettes like the New Look, a hourglass silhouette which emphasis the feminine shape, A Line and his shapely Bar Jacket. The House of Dior is headed up by Raf Simons who continues to revitalize the House of Dior, adhering to the brand’s heritage and values.
The company is part of LVMH and one of the leading fashion brands known for luxurious goods. With over 210 stores worldwide, they offers womenswear, leather goods, accessories, shoes, watches and skincare products whilst maintaining their couture house.
The Christian Dior label also operates a menswear line Dior Homme and fine jewellery line.
