PARIS — First-half sales at Christian Dior Couture increased 5 percent at constant exchange rates to 366 million euros, or $560.2 million. In reported terms, revenues dipped 0.5 percent.
In a statement released late last week, Dior said sales at the Paris-based fashion house remained strong in the emerging markets of China, Russia and the Middle East, as well as in Europe. The company said the growth, compared with a 16 percent organic revenue gain in the first half last year, “attests to the strength of the brand in an uncertain economic environment.”

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
