I am entering a bridal competition with university, my theme being the 1920's. Looking at dior from the 1950's has really inspired my dress design, Dior went against the other designers and used lots of materials and was very flamboyant and glamorous, something that could of been rejected after the war. The war impacted on the whole world, in every way. Designers had to make there clothing appropriate for what was going on at the time, people could not be walking round in huge dresses with bright colours and happy themes when people everyday were fighting for there country.
Dior in the 1950's wanted to change fashion, it had been so dreary and cheapened. Christian Dior went against critics and made glamorous luxurious clothing, it could have been his downfall but instead was probably the most memorable era for Dior yet.
