Is Dior a luxury brand?

1 Answer
Is Dior a luxury brand?
Yes, Dior is a luxury brand.

Legendary French designer Christian Dior launched his haute couture house in 1946. He would go on to alter the landscape of 20th century fashion. Vintage Dior bags, shoes, evening dresses, shirts and other garments and accessories are known today for their feminine and sophisticated sensibility.

A luxury brand is typically recognized for its heritage and its dedication to uncompromising quality standards (luxury brands are synonymous with a history of excellence in service and craftsmanship). Exclusivity plays an enormous role with respect to luxury brands, and while all luxury fashion brands are not necessarily haute couture houses, what could be more exclusive than a dress that has been custom-fitted and constructed by hand from start to finish?

Only a select group of fashion houses are legally permitted to operate with the haute couture title, and Dior, a universally revered luxury brand, is one of them.
