Christian Dior's New Look, 1947. As a reaction to the rationing of World War II the new look, using many metres of fabric, came into fashion. It was a return to the classic feminine shape, emphasising the bust and hips, with a tiny waist. I love how glamorous this looks with the tiny jacket and voluminous skirt.

1950 Jacques Fath. I'm fascinated by this feature where a length of fabric is wrapped/draped around and tucked through a loop. It turns up on a lot of designs in the 1950s, sometimes in a contrasting fabric.
