“Don’t buy much but make sure that what you buy is good.”
My first time on your channel but the way you talk is just so captivating as if I’m listening to some good tea
Is there a part 2??

Christian dior, christian dior, im up in all the stores
Love your fashion history videos ! Hope you make more.
Very amazing video,two days ago I got the wonderful one from replicaclubs..ru
His autobiography is one of the best books I have ever read! Christian Dior not only was an amazing designer but he was a good person too!
I love how the models from then moved. Models today really bore me.
The move that the Dior took was so strategic , it made fortunes for them.
This shows that you have to put in effort in order to succeed.
dior having mgc now.. isnt necessarily a disappointment, but let’s just say that im hoping that i witness its elegance again..
im still new to fashion, and have much to learn, but even though mgc isn’t the greatest, i thank her for bringing me in. still, i hope she/other new designer brings the classic feeling of a dior fashion show 🙁
Hello, does anyone know anything about the gown that appears at 3:14? When was it made? Is it a camo pattern on it? I would appreciate your help! : ))
I came across your channel for the roast but stay at your channel for the research. It is truly sad that Dior went from what it was to what it is nowadays, i.e., being sued for copyright infringement for allegedly using Instagram photos.
So this guy made uniforms for the nazys????
I love this channel
He would ‘ve been so proud of Pop Smoke fr
It’s "Haute Mode" not Haute le Mode, which makes no sense in French. You should have checked it before you started your channel. You could say l’Haute Mode, however. You should also learn how to pronounce la rue Montaigne.
It looks like you know zero French.
He doesn’t seem to pronounce "haute" correctly. It sounds more like "hot "
Dior my favorite brand….LOVE THEIR PARFUM LINE!!
did your noties get spammd yet
I have always wondered what motivated haute couture. To hear that it was a response to post-war conditions and the desire to move out of a sense of scarcity and into abundance makes sense. Both men and women could benefit from the je ne sais quoi.
Aaaammmmaaaaazing video !!!! Please do a video on Schiaparelli !! (Also on her collaboration with Salvador Dalí) !!!!
When you think about it, Europe was completely in shambles at the time the New Look dropped. Like every city had just acres of bombed out buildings. In some places the rubble stuck around for decades (In London, they were still rebuilding from the Blitz into the 1960s). People didn’t have enough to eat and disease (like the TB that Dior caught) was rampant. To top it off, the horrors of the Holocaust and the trials of Nazis were being broadcast for the first time. Oh and also fear of atomic war that might end life on Earth at any moment was brand new as well. That is the context for the New Look and it’s kind of staggeringly and willfully tone deaf and yet it’s so incredibly beautiful as well. The structural/sculptural quality of it made it walking art. I’m obsessed with classic film and some of my favorite film makers, Powell and Pressburger, made the movie The Red Shoes in this same context, filming in the South of France, and turned out one of the most egregiously beautiful movies ever made. It’s almost like people were thirsting for beauty and luxury after so much deprivation and destruction.
Truly enjoyed this video. Thank you
This is my favourite video in the world ,thank you <3
Interesting video, but the (very sparsely edited) auto-generated captions are unfortunately a very hard to follow disaster. If I did not have the ability to mostly hear the narration, this video would be incredibly confusing.
I’d love to offer to fix them, through community captioning, because this seems like an interesting video with good information. But Google apparently decided they weren’t worth it. So unfortunately there’s nothing I can do except bring it to the attention of the creators.
6:33 no you did not
Comme Des Garcons sil vous plait!
ugh its so interesting i love it
Love this series!
This fashion history videos are so interesting, please do more
So good I love your channel, I’d really enjoy episodes on Dirk Van Saene, Dirk Bikkembergs and Marina Yee!!
I enjoyed this, with one critique: Dior didn’t create a silhouette: the "New Look" was new and fresh for people at the time, but it was clearly Neo-Victorian in aesthetic, a callback to the 1850’s. It’s probably no surprise that it took off in the US in the 1950’s, when the social roles for women were so parallel those of the previous century: 1850’s "distaff side" was 1950’s "homemaker"; 1850’s "angel of the hearth/home" was 1950’s "domestic goddess"; and both eras punished women for being sexual while also expecting them to bear children. In terms of visual symbology, the corseted/girdled waist indicates being reduced or tightly controlled (even self-controlled, not always oppressed); the huge skirt both hides and calls attention to the woman’s reproductive area; and the downward-sloping shoulders suggest weakness, yielding, or passivity. I love the New Look, and always feel smashing in a dress with nipped waist and full skirt, but I can enjoy it and also know where it comes from and why it recurs in Western fashion whenever the social pressure is on for women to be more decorative than active. The luxury which Dior and his customers were reaching for was the opposite of wartime privation, and by extension the opposite of women’s wartime responsibility to be useful and competent.
I love Dior! I have planned on making a replica of the iconic “Bar” suit for myself and even making the undergarments that go with it to support the stiff skirt.
Keep going this is a good series
You’re videos are very helpful. I’m learning so much. Happy I discovered your channel!
