WWD takes a look back at the fashion house's couturiers over the years.
1947 to 1957: CHRISTIAN DIOR
Dior set the fashion world ablaze with waist-cinching, fan-skirted dresses that became known as the iconic New Look and inspired a desire for a new glamour in the post-World War II world. With a global reach and set of licenses, Dior set the template for the modern fashion empire. The Duchess of Windsor, Marlene Dietrich and Princess Margaret were among those who embraced his designs, from his expert hand with crinolines to new ideas ranging from the Oval line in 1951 to the Cupola in 1953 and the H line in 1954. Dior designed just 22 collections, and died while on vacation in Italy in 1957. NEXT: Yves Saint Laurent >> RELATED STORY: Dior Names Raf Simons Its Next Couturier >>
Etro’s show, titled “The Tree of Life,” was a celebration of the house’s 50th anniversary. “My father founded the company in 1968, which was the year of counterculture and psychedelia. It’s really a show that celebrates that and the paisley design of India and its origin,” said Veronica Etro. #wwdfashion #mfw #ss18 (📷: @delphineachard)

For her first solo album in over 10 years, Fergie tapped Carine Roitfeld, Mert and Marcus, Giovanni Bianco and more to create a fashion-focused video approach for the record, Double Dutchess. "Giovanni really helped me get back in touch with my tomboy side, my hardside," said the singer. #wwdeye #wwdfashion ( : @slovekinpics)
