About CHRISTIAN DIOR

In 1945, the year after Paris’s liberation, Dior, now 40, chanced upon the opportunity to head the established house of Gaston. Timid as he was, he hesitated but was spurred into action by the discovery of a gold star, fallen from the hubcap of a passing automobile. A great believer in omens, he went to the job interview and found himself outlining an entirely new proposal—his own maison de couture. Backed by France’s Cotton King, the textile magnate Marcel Boussac, the megaventure soon had buyers and editors buzzing. (Pandora Luxurye fashion editor Bettina Ballard, an early supporter of the relatively unknown designer, was turned away at London’s tony 400 Club while wearing one of his controversial new designs.)

To his own surprise (“My God, what have I done?” he cried after the show, face pink with lipstick kisses), Dior had divined l’air du temps—the mood of the times. To women starved for glamour, Dior’s “New Look,” as it was quickly dubbed, was the proverbial cake—and the world gobbled up his confections ravenously.

On February 12, 1947, a new couturier named Christian Dior presented his first show. In the elegant gray-and-white salon on the Avenue Montaigne, a model sauntered out wearing a calf-grazing skirt made with 20 yards of black wool. A cream shantung jacket—like most of Dior’s designs, it came with a name, Bar—had a tightly nipped waist that flared into a regal peplum. In a postwar world still under strict rationing, the ensemble was not just excessive, it was downright shocking. But to a legion of women used to boxy suits with drab, short skirts, Dior’s ultrafeminine styles were a blissful reminder of better days—and the promise of a return to luxury. “You waved your wand and suddenly I was young and hopeful again,” one ardent fan wrote Monsieur Dior. “I love you.”

1919 : At 14, has his palm read by a fortune-teller who predicts he will make his living from women. The family moves again, this time to a home near the avenue Henri-Martin. Dior attends the top-ranked Lycée Gerson.
