History

The company was founded 1946 in the prestigious Avenue Montaigne in Paris. Designer Christian Dior teamed up with his wealthy friend Marcel Boussac to create a brand this year that is among the most exclusive in the world. The very first collection presented in 1947 was a huge success. Not only in France, but also in America soon everyone spoke about the new creator duo. The fashion Dior created was considered revolutionary. Tight-fittings, figure-hugging tops and long, swinging skirts caused quite a stir. The fact that Paris is considered a fashion capital today is not least due to Christian Dior's guilt. Whatever he designed and presented, soon found its way around the world and became the latest fashion. In addition to exceptional designs, the company also had a wide variety of products. The perfume "Miss Dior" was launched in 1947 and is still a true classic today. In the early 1950s, an own fur and hat studio joined the portfolio of the brand. Within 10 years, the young team managed to employ over 900 people and Christian Dior became an icon.

After his death in 1957, the fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent took over the position as chief designer. Under the direction of Boussac, he introduced the successful "Trapezine Line". This was a counterpart to the original figure-hugging pattern of the brand. The fashion that allowed the woman to gracefully present herself without a tight wasp waist became a celebrated success, giving the young designer a highly respected name in the fashion world. However, he was dismissed in 1961 because the original style of the brand was barely recognizable. In his place, Marc Bohan was hired to hold the position as chief designer for almost 30 years.

Although the company came back to its original design, but had to recognize that the style in the 1970s was no longer considered up to date. In addition, Dior forgave too many licenses, for example, for their perfume and cosmetics line, which damaged the reputation of the company. Dior slipped into a crisis, which was aggravated when numerous counterfeits overwhelmed the market. In 1978, the loss-making company was taken over by the Agache-Willot Textile Group, which had to file for bankruptcy following a failed expansion policy. In 1981 the entrepreneur Bernard Arnault bought the company and brought it back on the road to success.

Six years earlier, in 1975, the brand's first watch was released. The "Black Moon" was an elegant men's watch. In 2001 the subsidiary Les Ateliers Horlogers Dior SA was founded, which has, since launched, numerous and versatile women's and men's models. The watches combined Parisian elegance with Swiss watchmaking. The result is an extremely precise timepieces, which, in addition to its functionality, are worn as high-class jewels of the upper class. Versatile designed case shapes, hands and ornaments reflect the company's long history while embracing the latest fashion changes.
