The House of Dior
Christian Dior was born in 1905 into a family of wealthy industrialists. However, his favorite field was art, and in 1925 he opened his first art gallery.

In 1946, he founded his own fashion house. His first ready-to-wear collection for women marked the beginning of an illustrious career that would take him all over the world. Christian Dior made the front page of the New York Times and was awarded the Legion of Honor. In 1955, he opened a boutique at 30, avenue de Montaigne. He died suddenly of a heart attack in 1957. He was succeeded by Pierre Balmain, and after him by the most illustrious designers, each time opening a new chapter, but always cultivating the House's style. It was not until more than fifty years after its founding that the House of Dior created a jewelry department, under the aegis of Victoire de Castellane.
