On February 12, 1947, Christian Dior launched his first collection for Spring-Summer 1947. The collection was called "Corolla", but it is known as ''New Look" it was named by an American magazine editor. I think this is the most amazing thing in the whole fashion history, Dior made the women feels like a flower after the WWII. The collection was very well done, the full skirt, the large bust and the small waist.
An amazing book i just bought lately, very helpful specially for anyone who works with colours. The book is by the author Kiki Eldridge who is a graphic designer and writer. The book gives the readers colour inspiration, tear-out color swatches, colour advice and information. I think it is helpful and very useful reference for anyone working with colours.

The note book, is great love story, it is one of my favorite movies of all time. The movie is based on a novel written by Nicholas Sparks. It is about a poor young man falls in love with a rich young woman and gives her a sense of love and freedom, but they are separated because of their social differences.
