Christian Dior's Spring Fashion Show, 1948.
Christian Berard, the Surrealist painter, seated on the floor, gazing at passing gowns during Christian Dior's Spring Fashion show, 1948. In 1947 Christian Dior created a sensational collection labelled the 'New Look.' His designs centred around gowns with an 18-inch waist, which focused attention on the bust and hips. He paired the nipped in waist with a full skirt, using a large amount of material. This was seen as luxuriously extravagant because of the rations upon material following the war. Dior developed his talents through a study of art which included painting, magazine illustration and European architecture.
