Thank you Patricia Mears, Associate Director on the Museum at FIT, for a great opportunity to think about how fashion and interiors reveal our soul. You pose  the best questions and have the most informed audience. Let’s continue! 

Tanya Melendez, thank you for the seamlessly flowing evening!

When former gallerist and frustrated architect Christian Dior turned his talents to fashion, he defined not only the look of his era—The New Look—but forecast trends we embrace to this day. What were the forces that coalesced to create such timeless style?

Come to FIT this Thursday October 20 at 5:30 to delve into the alchemy of fashion and design.

Christian Dior worked closely with two Parisian interior designers. When designers today use gray and white, houndstooth and leopard, satin skirts and sunburst mirrors they are , in fact, paying homage to the New Look chic of Victor Grandpierre and Georges Geffroy.
