New-look; new look

name of a fashion collection from the Parisian house Christian Dior, first shown at the beginning of 1947, when it caused a sensation and entered fashion history. Brought in a new line for ladies' garments and a typically feminine look. Distinctive for its rounded, unpadded shoulders, its accentuated waist, the light emphasizing of the hips, the extended length of the skirt to reach to mid-calf, the luxuriance of its gathering - all of which gave it a very romantic look. Its materials were soft and flowing, and they abounded in excess. The change this style brought was accepted rapidly, and manufacturers of ready-to-wear clothing made out of it a highly wearable ladies' and girls' fashion style.
