Dior – Secret Garden, Versailles

In May 2012 Dior launched a short film called Secret Garden – Versailles. A few days ago Dior uploaded a new short film named Secret Garden 2 – Versailles. I am fascinated by the gold necklace in the film, I tell you I would turn twice if I see a woman who wears that necklace. Underneath the video there are a few still shots that inspire me and help me visualize a woman that I would personally design for.

Daily Obsessions

The other day I came across these Christian Dior metal Cannage platform pumps and I am obsessed with them. What I love about them is that they scream out Dior but in an elegant way like the Louboutin red sole. What’s beautiful about them is that they are timeless and elegant.

My Video

As a studio art minor one of the classes that I chose to take was a multimedia arts class. As the semester comes to an end our projects are due soon. So yesterday I spent my entire day at the film lab at American University trying to create this video. I decided to collect shots and images from different designer advertisements, movies, and music videos to create the video. This video has parts from 2 Dior advertisements, an Elie Saab advertisement, a part from The Great Gatsby trailer, Wicked Games by The Weeknd, Pri-Madonna Girl by Marina and The Diamonds, and an advertisement for H&M. Your feedback is appreciated, so if there is anything wrong I could fix it before its due. I hope you like it!

Oscars 2013

Many stars walked down the red carpet, but the following stars are the ones that stood out the most for me.  I especially loved Jennifer Lawrence’s Dior Couture dress. Also I loved how Jennifer Lawrence’s fall showed the full beauty of the dress. Charlize Theron also wore a Dior Couture dress. While Amy Adams wore an Oscar de la Renta.

Fall 2013 – Dior Homme

I loved the belts that were included in the collection, it visually gives the wearer a smaller waist. Furthermore, during the collection many shirts and suits and a geometrical design in it (the circle with the triangle in the middle), I may not be the biggest fan of this print or shape, but I enjoyed the collection as a whole. Take a look at my favorite pieces from the collection:
