fun-to-know facts about dear Christian Dior.
The name Yves Saint Laurent is synonymous for style, sex and the seventies. He burst onto the scene in the sixties but it was his trademark flowing shapes and safari suiting that helped to define the iconic decade of the 70's and smoothed the transition from hippie to disco.
