- (1905-1957)couturierBorn in Granville, Christian Dior came late to fashion, founding his own couture house in 1946. He was an immediate success with his "new look" collection (shirtwaist dresses, long and ample skirts). Encouraged by his success, he built a commercial empire founded on an international network of trademark licensing that flourished even after his death. Dior was succeeded by his protégé yves saint laurent and other designers.
