Christian Dior turned the fashion world on its head on February 12, 1947 when he introduced his first line which came to be known as the “New Look” featuring rounded shoulders, a cinched waist, and very full skirt. The “New Look ” celebrated femininity and opulence in women’s fashion. Dior created a sumptuous and lavish look that broke away from the spare and masculine styles of the war years. This was a totally new direction for fashion and helped return Paris to its place as fashion capital of the world.
I’ve scoured Etsy and have found some beautiful garments from that time and style. How wonderful that we can still experience first hand these gorgeous and historical works of art.
