The inspiration for this jacket came from Dior's 1947 Spring/Summer collection. The "Bar suit", also known as Dior's New Look, captured the essence of how a woman should dress. The fitted jacket accentuated the woman's waist and bust and the full skirt added a feminine touch. I wanted my jacket to embody all of the characteristics Dior's ideal woman possessed and I feel I was successful.
