1950s- The Teenager had Arrived...

After the war ended, youth and optimism was at the forefront of society. The changing face of fashion revolutionized the industry. Which meant there were bigger businesses. Also, fashion was embraced by more people than ever before.

Teenagers were able to get their own jobs, they had more freedom and they were allowed to leave home at a earlier age.

Christian Dior

Christian Dior's post-war collection made him a household name. His New Look re-established Paris as the Fashion Capital of the world.

His rapid success meant that his business grew. 
In 1948, he named a new collection 'Envol' (means Flight) which featured skirts worn with scooped back jackets and stand up collars. 

Also, he was famous for the Princess line, Coolie hats and Straight skirts.
