After graduated his father reluctantly gave him enough money to start a small gallery of art. But when the family suffered financial disaster and his father lost his business, Dior was forced to close his gallery. After a brief stint in the army, Dior joined the House of Lucien Lelong fashion, where it quickly became one of their designers.

To achieve this "new image" Dior used tissues lined with Percale, filled with hip and petticoats which makes the dresses more in the area of the waist and bust, that shaped their models a curvier.
