French fashion designer Christian Dior is best known as the founder of one of the top fashion houses called Christian Dior. He was born in 1905 in Granville, France and died in 1957 and his fashion house was owned by Groupe Arnault.
Christian Dior was the second son of five children; he had artistic nature and wished to be involved in arts and from very early age he started to make sketches and he sold his fashion sketches to make or earn money.
He entered in the fashion industry properly when he was employed by the fashion designer Robert Piguet who gave him the opportunity to design his three collections.
Gradually he became famous and established his own fashion house by the label of his own name; he presented his first collection in 1947.
He was a master at creating shapes and silhouettes, his look employed fabrics lined predominately with percale, boned, bustier-style bodices, hip padding, wasp-waisted corsets and petticoats that made his dresses flare out from the waist giving his models a very curvaceous form.Here we are talking about Christian Dior pre-fall collection 2017 presented in a fashion show.
Maria Grazia Chiuri is Christian Dior’s first female artistic director said that, Paris has always been an aspirational place for people to express their creativity.
Maria’s pre-fall collection for Dior marks the first of much creative iteration she will present throughout a significant year in the maison’s history; its 70th anniversary. She has a goal, proposing a wardrobe that encourages individuality, she thought that it is possible today to only show one look and thought that ladies want iconic pieces that allow them to find a look for themselves.
Maria Grazia Chiuri said, “You can dress like you want, you can express how you feel and I feel the atmosphere of freedom in this city”.
The approach was summed up by a long coat in a mosaic patch work of precious garments; the coat is like a blend of old and new, the polished and the raw.
This floor length gown is designed in the combination of black and white came in a palm print inspired by tarot readings while others were embroidered with stars and astrological signs and these signs also cropped up on evening bags and in talisman trinkets looped onto long chains.
In this pre-fall collection, denim separates embellished with folkloric silver embroidery contrasted with severe outfits with an equestrian flair like a striking black dress with a tasseled hem that was topped with a matching jacket. The capes in this collection came in fabric ranging from military-inspired khaki wool to hippie -style embroidered sheepskin.
