Christian Dior grew up in Granville, on the cliffs of Normandy, in a house buffeted by strong winds, and seemingly unsuited to the creation of a garden. However, the young man’s creative strength and relentless hard work defied nature, and totaly one can still admire the garden in bloom and in particular, the fantastic rose garden planted with his own hands.
Christian dior also loved the excitement of parties and often hosted the aptly named “Grand Balls of the Century” with enchanted beauties from the Normandy coast and Paris alike. The theme of the festive garden is still alive today throughout many Dior creations. The Dior spring collection is inspired by Dior’s fantastic garden.
