The end of January saw the Haute Couture Fashion Week (Spring/Summer 2011) take place in Paris. Of all the fabulous designers who showed there – it was Christian Dior who illicited the best reviews. Known for its drama, theatrics and glamour, the Dior show is always a sumptuous spectacle, with bright, rich colours, beautiful models and billowing gowns.
Dior women include actresses Sharon Stone, Charlize Theron and the Oscar-nominated Natalie Portman who has recently joined the fold. The Parisian design house, headed up by the equally dramatic John Galliano, prides itself on dressing and accessorising strong, gorgeous women.
If you’re a fan of Dior and John Galliano’s work you’ll be very taken with Shade Station’s selection of Christian Dior sunglasses. Our new range of Dior shades tick all the current trend boxes.
