    Christian Dior's New Look, 1947, #Dior #Fashion #1940s

  • Kara Brownlee Wardrobe Consultant

    Christian Dior's iconic 1947 the “bar suit”, is one of the most referenced pieces in fashion. Dior used boned corsets, rounded, sloping shoulders, built-in petticoats, and hip pads to create the under-structure and curved stand-away shape to his garments. His signature design of small waist with full skirt falling below mid-calf length used metres of fabric after war-time rationing. This is where it all started.
