Happy birthday to the man who gave us the game-changing New Look, who came from a fertiliser manufacturer family, who brought Paris back to the centre of the fashion world, and who has been name-dropped in song by both Kanye and Morrissey. Christian Dior would be 108 today, and we think yesterday's haute couture show was a fitting tribute to the eponymous designer.
