Christian Dior

In celebration of the House of Dior’s 70th anniversary, Christian Dior explores the brilliance behind Dior’s dramatic creations that revived the entire Paris haute couture industry after the devastation of the Second World War. In 1947, the opening of the new couture house and the revolutionary “New Look” – with soft shoulders, padded hips and long, full skirts – swept away the wartime masculine silhouette making Christian Dior’s postwar fashions desired, worn and copied by women around the world.

“After a little while, those standing there went up to Peter and said, ‘Surely you are one of them, for your accent gives you away.’ Then he began to call down curses on himself and he swore to them, ‘I don’t know the man!’ Immediately a rooster crowed. Then Peter remembered the word Jesus had spoken: ‘Before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times.’ And he went outside and wept bitterly” (Matthew 26:73-75).
