 Christian Dior / Fashion Designer (1905-1957) - Design/Designer Information
Christian Dior was born in 1905 in Granville, a lively seaside town on the Normandy coast.
Dior longed to become an architect but, at his father’s insistence, he enrolled at the prestigious Ecole des Sciences Politiques (nicknamed Sciences Po’) in Paris to take a degree in politics which, or so his parents hoped, would prepare him for a diplomatic career.
Dior was invited by a childhood friend from Granville to revive Philippe et Gaston, a struggling clothing company owned by Marcel Boussac, the “King of Cotton” with an empire of racing stables, newspapers and textile mills.

 Christian Dior
In 1905 Christian Dior was born in the town of Grenville on the French coast and when he was 5 years old, his family moved to Paris.
Dior explained that this theme was meant to animate the figure, demanding that the eyes follow the lines of folds boned, wired and lined to stick out as far as 2 feet from the body.
Dior felt that he was not being recognized enough for his work and did have plans to give him more recognition, but he died before these plans could be put into place.

 glbtq >> arts >> Dior, Christian
Dior was born on January 21, 1905 to a wealthy family in Granville, France.
Dior never married, and there were and continue to be rumors and speculation about his sexuality.
The absence of any discussion of Dior's private life in his autobiography may constitute a kind of negative evidence of his presumed homosexuality, for it was difficult, if not impossible, for gay men in the public eye to come out in the first half of the twentieth century.

In the space of ten years, from 1947 to 1957 (the date of his death), Christian Dior succeeded in creating a fashion house whose name is famous the world over.
The House of Dior was bought up in 1987; today, it belongs to the world's leading manufacturer of luxury goods, the Louis-Vuitton-Moët-Hennessy Group.
The Dior touch is all there, noticeable in the cut of the suits, the sense of detail, the inlays and hidden seams, the embroidered, white guipure coats, the swallow-tail jacket trains and the velvet evening gowns, faithful to that "sense of the accomplished and perfect" dear to the inventor of the new look.
