50’s are coming back! And we can see it in plenty of famous designers’ collections for autumn 2010. In those times of Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn, Dior’s challenged the fashion world with the ‘New Look’, which brought him a big success.

This new approach to fashion was based on the spirit of the feminine look, no more military-like. The women’s clothes were characterized by voluminous skirts with a full-calf length, small waist and large cleavage. There was Dior’s fitted jacket also combined with a straight mid-calf length skirt. At evening parties, women could enjoy charming strapless boned tops with full skirts. Moreover, these lovely works were made of huge amounts of yards of fabrics, which was slightly extravagant at that time. Well, the ladies had been desperately longed for this!

We know that this Dior’s risky achievement has influenced not only the past fashion icons, but from time to time it also arises in the last styles of today’s fashion world. Our task for now: try to find the inspiration coming from the ‘New Look’ in the autumn collections by Dolce&Gabbana, Louis Vuitton and Prada.
