The Collection beautifully captures the silhouettes of the 1950s. The signature shapes & details that made Christian Dior famous was shown in each dresses, such as, pencil-line skirts, swirling fan pleat circle skirts, over the top ball gowns with feathers, beadings & embroideries. Also the strong contrast on models make-up, bold red lipsticks, porcelain skin foundation with defined blush on the cheeks, all lead back to Fashion Illustrator René Gruau's signature illustration style.
