Christian Dior Couture Internship Profile
Christian Dior studied political science before becoming the world’s premier 1950s fashion designer. He had his change of heart in 1938; and in 1953, he hired then-unknown Yves Saint-Laurent as his assistant. When Dior died in 1957, Saint-Laurent took the reigns as the company’s head designer. The growth of this leading fashion company has been tremendous in the last 10 years. Although the couture fashion industry has been hit by the Recession, Dior’s diverse offerings—including perfumes, jewelry and ready-to-wear clothing— mean it will continue to succeed.
