Background: The autumn and winter collection at the French fashion house of Christian Dior was shown to the press in Paris on Friday (21 July).
Modern styling combined with elegance set the tone of the Dior creations.
The materials used in the collection are exclusive both in texture and impression.
The refined effect of the design and the pursuit of details used in their creation are the essential traits supporting Dior's 1972-73 line.
SYNOPSIS: Christian Dior, the French couture house in Paris, was the scene of last week's press preview of Dior's all and winter collection.
This year the accent is on wearable fashions, creations combining modern styling with the right amount of elegance, Here, a black and green reversible coat is worn over a black and orange dress.
This model is wearing a fuschia-coloured short coat over a long printed evening dress with a black boy at the waist. The Dior line is made of rather exclusive materials with much attention paid to detail. The use of contrasting colours is also a marked feature of the collection.
Furs are also included in the autumn and winter designs....Underneath the fur coat, a matching blue dress to go with the hat. The Dior creations for next season have as their main traits a refined look to the basic design and a pursuit of detail.
