Christian Dior Women's Suits From The 40s - 50s

1940s 1950s 40s 50s black and white christian dior couture designer dior fashion harpers bazaar haute couture new look photography suits

Christian Dior only presented his first haute couture collection at the age of 42 in February 1947. He introduced never-before-seen, sexy silhouettes characterized by the tiny waists, voluptuous busts and voluminous sleeves in a fabulous show. At the end of the fashion show, the editor-in-chief of Harper's Bazaar, Carmel Snow, exclaimed "It's quite a revolution, dear Christian! Your dresses have such a new look!" And thus, this style became known as the "New Look", which would revolutionize the way women dressed for decades.
I find this silhouette to be the most flattering and feminine for women of all sizes and shapes. Enjoy these images of some of Christian Dior's exquisite women's suits. They could just as easily be worn by a boss lady, or even mother of the bride today!
