New Look

By Cajsa Lilliehook

The New Look was introduced by Christian Dior in  his first collection in 1947. It featured clothing using lots of fabric, voluminous skirts. World War II was over and so was fabric rationing and this was a celebration of that. It was wild, extravagantly feminine and very controversial – denounced in Britain where they were still rationing.

Check out Voguepedia’s entry on the New Look for much more information.

Santino Rice's little ditty "It's only fashion" seems a perfect title for my little fashion blog as you and i know that fashion means the world to him.
