Ms. Fraser-Cavassoni whisked us into the world of Christian Dior and shared unique insights into the ten years Monsieur Dior ran his esteemed house. She took us on a journey through the years when the famous couturier had first founded his fashion house and swiftly rose to superstardom, expanding his empire to perfumes, jewellery and hosiery while opening boutiques all over the world.
