Dior Doll Lesson

Hello God!

Thank You for my daughter. We are girls and our favorite game is to wear a paper dolls.

The best way to learn a child is a game. The game with Dior paper dolls is for cultivating classic style and elegant attitude to clothing. I am a little afraid to see my daughter in goth style with face piercing when she will be a teenager. So my pink Dior glasses give me a hope.



Beautiful girls Renne and Lisa are from Paris. They will teach us how to became a true Dior Lady.


Jacket with a pleated skirt is a classical suit with french charm.


Emphasizing waist is compulsory element of your dresses.


Wool jacket with the bowl and drapery dress are the most chic for winter.


Hats are the objects of attention in every look. Your eyes should  sparkle.



Evening gown is epitome of elegance and femininity.  A glass of champagne can be a good accessorie.


Mink coat is great for visiting Opera.


Floral silk dress is a classic hook for the first picnic with special yesterday’s acquaintance.


What’s the wonderful mix of colors! Orange with pink sounds harmonious. Three piece ensemble in grey is great for work.


“A-line” suit is for brave and stylish girls. Add veil and lilac bouquet and you admire an attention from all around men.


Color wool suit and coat make happy rainy fall days.


“Great Gatsby” style is on the verge of fashion today.


In conclusion of the lesson the advice from Thomas Hillgrove is relevant: “Ladies should also remember that gentlemen look more to the effect of a dress in setting off the figure and countenance of a lady than to its cost. Very few gentlemen have any idea the value of ladies’ dresses. This is a subject for female criticism. Beauty of person and elegance of manners in women will always command more admiration from the opposite sex than beauty, elegance or costliness of clothing.”  The Scholars’ Companion and Ball Room Vade Mecum,

Thank you for your attention. I am happy to see you elegant and charming!

Dior Child

Hello God!

Thank You for the 1st of August. Today is the Birthday of ingenious fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent.

In the early 1950s, a young Yves Saint Laurent arrived in Paris, armed with an array of fashion sketches. Within a year, the 18-year-old student of haute couture was snapped up by Christian Dior and hired as his studio assistant.


When in 1957, Christian Dior passed away unexpectedly, Saint Laurent became Dior’s head designer. His first independent collection, the «Trapèze» collection, presented in January 1958, was an immense success. The shy young man in glasses and a clean-cut looking suit was only 22.


After Yves Saint Laurent’s “Trapese” collection was shown the press declared that “Saint Laurent has saved French fashion” and “the great Dior tradition will continue.”


It included one of Saint Laurent’s first and most famous innovations – the trapeze dress.


Saint Laurent’s “Trapeze” was permeated by a mischievous spirit of youth. His dresses were known for their sharp lines and unusual proportions and length.


“Will this young man be able to uphold Dior’s traditions of high couture?” the press wondered before the showing.


But all doubts vanished. Dior child with his own long and beautiful way was born under the bright Star!

Happy Birthday dear Yves Saint Laurent! Thank you for Your Gift dedicated to Woman: “It pains me physically to see a woman victimized, rendered pathetic, by fashion… What is important in a dress is the woman who is wearing it.”

I am happy to celebrate  Yves Saint Laurent’s Birthday with you. Thank you for your happiness to live.

Perfect Dress

Hello God!

Thank You for my daughter’s passion about princesses. Every her doll is a princess. As you know a princess dreams to become the Queen one day. The heart of coronation in her dream day is Perfect Dress, of course!

Since the age of just 26, Elizabeth II has been the Queen. Her coronation on June 2, 1953 was an unprecedented spectacle of pomp and pageantry and the Coronation Dress is the most important and perfect dress for 20th century.

Arriving At The Abbey

The Coronation Gown was created by the British couturier Norman Hartnell. I think the gown is the most exquisite couture work ever to be done. I am dazzled by the light and genius of this Masterpiece.


On her way to Westminster Abbey, the Queen wore these fantastic pieces of jewellery, made in diamonds and pearls, the Diamond Diadem made for George IV, Queen Victoria’s collet diamond necklace and diamond drop earrings.

The jewels speak for themselves.


Norman Hartnell had previously made Her Majesty’s wedding dress for her marriage to Prince Philip. By the way he became the first couturier to be knighted.

Coronation Crown

The gown had a sweetheart neckline and full skirt and was embroidered with some 10,000 seed-pearls and many thousands of beads. It was trailed by a 15 foot star-patterned train.

Made of English silk, the dress was so heavy that three layers of horsehair were used, so as to lighten it enough that the Queen could move freely through the complicated manoeuvres in Westminster Abbey.

Eight months in the making, the Queen is reported to have declared it “glorious” the first time she saw it and wore it six more times after coronation day, including at the opening of parliaments in New Zealand and Australia in 1954 and Canada in 1957.


The decoration on the robe comprises a border of wheat ears and olive branches, symbolizing peace and plenty.


Intricate embroidery featured floral details to represent each country ruled by Elizabeth II: the English Tudor rose, the Welsh Leek, the Scots thistle, the Australian wattle, the New Zealand fern, protea for South Africa, two lotus flowers for India and Ceylon, wheat, cotton and jute for Pakistan.

The motifs on the dress were embroidered in pastel-coloured silks, pearls, diamonds, pale amethysts, golden crystals, gold and silver bullion and sequins to create a shimmering effect. There was one emblem not included in the embroidery sample that was included in the dress: ‘unknown to the Royal wearer there was one extra little four-leaved shamrock for luck.’ Hartnell secretly later added an embroidered extra four-leaved Shamrock on the left side of her dress as an omen for good fortune.

It was embroidered by the Royal School of Needlework, who worked for a total of 3,500 hours between March and May 1953. Every detail was done by hand.

Its jewels glow, virtues; loyalty’s ruby,

blood-deep; sapphire’s ice resilience; emerald evergreen;

the shy pearl, humility. My whole life, whether it be long

or short, devoted to your service. Not lightly worn.

Thank you for sharing with me this beautiful moment. Lift up your head, Princess, not to miss your Coronation Day in the Perfect Dress of Success or Love or something you dream about! Perhaps the Day is today.
