PRLog - Aug. 1, 2012 - COVENT GARDEN, U.K. -- Vintage Seekers presents a sensational collection of these sumptuous, feminine designs with three classic 1940s and 1950s Dior dresses. The groundbreaking collection celebrated the female form in a way that had been inhibited during the war and propelled the Christian Dior label to the iconic status it has today.

"I created flower women with gentle shoulders and generous bosom, with tiny waists like stems and skirt belling out like petals."

Christian Dior described the innovative “New Look” silhouette he created for women in his first collection in 1947.

Each of the vintage dresses perfectly embodies the “New Look” – each with a nipped in waist, full skirt and feminine neckline. To further emphasise the femininity of the wearer, the first 1940s dress is in a striking black, heavy matt silk faille. Dior’s artful fabric draping is beautifully portrayed with a statement swag on the left hip and exaggerated shoulder tailoring. The waist is secured with a matching two-button cummerbund and the skirt features distinct pleats to the back.
Also in black silk, a jacket and dress set is branded Christian Dior Original – one of the innovative fashion house’s rarer prêt-à-porter labels. This two-piece set retains its original buttons, three on the bodice and four on the matching jacket. The lined jacket’s soft shoulders exemplify the move away from boyish cuts, a concept pioneered in Dior’s designs.
Christian Dior said that “pink is the sweetest of all colours” and at Vintage Seekers we are proud to offer the sweetest of all dresses with this vintage 1950’s shantung silk gown. With a built in bodice corset and matching fabric rose with a rhinestone centre, this would be the perfect vintage dress for summer or cocktail wear.
The Vintage Seekers Christian Dior “New Look” dresses would make an iconic addition to any collection or are perfectly wearable examples of timeless vintage fashion.
