A bit about the Dior "Colifichets Boutique"
The year after launching his couture House, in 1947, Christian Dior opened a tiny boutique on the ground floor, at the foot of the grand staircase, which was directed by his friend Carmen Colle. The store was decorated by young fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent who worked alongside Dior for 2 years, and finding himself as head designer of the Dior label at only 21. The tiny Colifichets store featured dresses, accessories, jewelry, scarves and more. This store played an important part in the fashion history of the Dior brand.
