Christian Dior S.A.
In 1946 fashion designer Christian Dior and his friend Marcel Boussac founded the company. In February 1947 the first fashion collection was presented, which was very well received and has been celebrated by American journalists as New Look. In the following years, Dior was significantly involved that Paris became a fashion capital. In addition to fashion, the house introduced its first perfume Miss Dior in 1947.
