Fashion History and Icon



Many might already recognize this fashion icon and extraordinare...
Marc Bohan (born August 22, 1926) is a French fashion designer. 
He was the assistant to Christian Dior and in charge of the London, England branch of the house until 1958, when Yves Saint-Laurent, then fashion director of the house, was drafted by the army into the Algerian War of Independence. (Saint-Laurent lasted 4 weeks in the army, then suffered a nervous breakdown.)
 Marc Bohan was handed the reins in Saint-Laurent's absence. 

These designs date back to the early to middle sixties when Marc Bohan was heading Christian Dior.I’m adoring these fluffy things...

 


Aren't they vintage!
