New Look by Dior

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.

Twitter has become on of the most popular social networks around the World Wide Web. It is a website that  asks the question "What are you doing?" where the answer can't be more than 140 characters in length. Answers can be sent through the web, instant message, or mobile texting. It makes it easier for people to connect and know what others are doing. It was a simple idea by Jack Dorsey where he wanted to be able to know what his friends were doing. Twitter was lunched publocly in August of 2006. The service grew popular really quickly. It has been joined by many famous people, such as, Kim Kardashian, the Backstreey boys,Karl Lagerfeld, Paris Hilton, and Oprah Winfrey. It is a very interesting website that keeps people communicated to others locally and internationally.
