Christian Dior was born 111 years ago today. Throughout his life aesthetics were a passion for the late fashion designer, who died in 1957—even from a young age. As a child, the entrepreneurial wunderkind earned pocket money by selling fashion sketches outside his family home. Later he designed his first collection while employed by Robert Piguet.

Dior founded his own fashion house in 1946, and with the launch of his very first collection in February of the next year, secured a place for himself in fashion history with full, flared skirt creations that that were dubbed the New Look. Dior’s legacy lives on through his iconic design house, which today boasts celebrity fans like Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Watson, and Lupita Nyong’o.
