#all things beautiful 1940s

~Dior Du Jour!~

As a writer, curator & archivist of the interesting, I know a good thing when I see it! 

When I stumbled upon these vintage Christian Dior mannequins at a recent trade show, I literally was speechless, and for those who know me well, that never happens! 

Mannequins like these were a rarity back in the day, and only the very best fashion houses could afford to have them made so exquisitely.
What a treat it was to see them all! 
I stopped by the following day to show to a friend, and they were gone. I was told that a single buyer had purchased them for a store front. 

{Circa. 1950s to 1980s. Made in France.}
