Christian Dior



Christian Dior: News out early this morning (3am Jap commonplace time) from Paris ' is that 'finalement' Christian Dior (a part of the LVMH Group) has named Raf Simons to be its next Creative Director. The French dressmaker had been craving for a return to a extra female silhouette to switch what he known as submit-warfare "soldier girls with a boxer's build". The hourglass-shaped "Bonbon" or "Sweetie" dress - one of more than a hundred high Fashion outfits which have just gone on display at a new exhibition in Paris - fitted the invoice completely. The disappearance of the cocktail dress mirrored the demise of lots of the old high fashion houses. The popularity of the home was constructed on couture.

Christian Dior inventive director Raf Simons' inspiration ran the gamut from the Dior archives'particularly the cinched at the waist, full-skirted silhouettes the house grew to become renowned for beginning within the 1950s'to futuristic astronaut wear, as if to say trend is at its best when both looking to the previous and to the future. And while the garments on show felt terribly wearable, take a closer look, and the couture detailing becomes all too obvious.

It was not surprising that the face of Dior would attend an exclusive event in New York Metropolis dressed within the aforementioned, as style and loyalty swimsuit Portman. Very long time friends, sisters Laura and Kay Mulleavy, designed Natalie's Rodarte wedding ceremony gown and her Oscar profitable dark magenta robe in 2011. At all times a red carpet stunner, Natalie Portman radiated in color block couture. Not that this comes as a surprise to those fans who love the Dior devotee.

Tendencies: Ball gowns; flapper attire; drop-waist shapes; long fitted coats; overt 18th Century Interval Costume references; "astronaut" zippered jumpsuits; sequined appliques; Couture mink coats; skirts with hems mimicking the tab'ed hems of 18th Century corsets...and great curved heel shoes! In fact, at one level within the mid 50's it was mentioned that the House of Dior was liable for half of the couture gross sales in Paris.
