Christian Dior was a legendary French fashion designer whose post–World War II creations were wildly popular, and whose legacy continues to influence the fashion industry. His successes, based on innovation of both of his designs and his business practices, made Dior the most successful fashion designer in the world.
A master of shapes and silhouettes, Christian Dior turned the traditional feeling of couture upside down. Creating contemporary fashion, Dior is credited with creating the ‘New Look’, the style that helped propel a fashion and social revolution.
