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 >>
Peter Kim's Los Angeles-based premium denim line has always had its finger on the pulse of youth. This season, novelty is back in a way reminiscent of early Aughts, with studs, lace-ups, racing waxed denim and more.

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
