Christian Dior defined the criteria of feminine elegance throughout the world. Born in 1905 in Granville, Normandy in France, Christian Dior began selling fashion drawings to certain Paris fashion houses in 1929. Five years later, the Christian Dior fashion house moved into the beautiful private town house at 30 avenue Montaigne in Paris. This mythical address is still home to the Dior House today. Christian Dior was a man of many facets, an emblem of the 20th century.
