Happy 60th, Dior!

This week, the House of Dior celebrated their 60th year of haute couture - sixty years since Christian Dior showed his first couture collection of sharp-shouldered suits with knee-length skirts on February 12, 1947.

In that sixty year period of time, Dior has much to be proud of. Christian Dior became famous for popularizing the "New Look" in the post-World War II era, which consisted of long flared A-line skirts and tiny corseted waists - a much more curvaceous form than the boxy suits of the early forties. After his death in 1957, an ambitious 21-year-old took over - Yves Saint Laurent, launched his career at the house of Dior - you can probably judge his success by his name recognition.

Carrying the house into the future is John Galliano, who celebrates his tenth anniversary at Dior this year - with all the pomp and circumstance he can muster - as seen at the couture show he put on this week. You have to hand it to the House of Dior - anything that can stay in fashion for 60 years deserves some respect - because we all know how fast things can go out of fashion!

The Dovina elephant photo is one of my favorite fashion pix of all time. I also loved the "...Is Your Dior" ad campaign.

Galliano is such a great showman. But sometimes, I have to say, it seems the showmanship outshines the collections...

Happy 60tt!!! No wonder Dior has been around for awhile, judging by the photos above their couture designs 60 years ago look like you something you would see in the runways today of any designers. That's just my take on Dior's longevity in the fashion world. keep the fashion coming.
