Celebrating Dior

In 2007 the house of Dior celebrated its 60th and John Galliano’s 10th anniversaries. To mark such an important moment in the history of the Maison, British Elle asked Bert Stern, a fashion photographer famous for the images of Marilyn Monroe in Dior taken during the three-day "Last Sitting" session, to create a story based on the looks from the past collections and showcase some of the most memorable Dior designs that stood the test of time.

In 2012, after two months of deliberation, I've made a decision to use the editorial as my first post of the "Dior series". Talking about Dior was, indeed, an obvious choice, yet almost a cliche for anyone and everyone would have written something about the designer by now. Finally, the decision was made... 

If you love Dior as much as I do and know a lot about him, then enjoy the imagery and treat it as a refresher. And if you are only just beginning to discover the world of fashion, the story of Dior is certainly one of those you need to be familiar with.

  24. If I be frank with myself and everybody else - Dior is my absolutely favourite, the brand which reflects my character and what I like. These photos/gowns are more or less 6 years old yet my breath stops when I look at them. When your heart stops just by looking at a dress - this is what I call DIOR:)
