In May 1989, LVMH shocked the fashion world when it announced Bohan had been dismissed and replaced with Italian designer Gianfranco Ferrè. (Jean-Paul Gaultier had approached Bernard Arnault, president of LVMH, and formally asked for the job. He asked again when Ferrè left in 1994). Bohan is rumoured to have discovered this by reading it in the newspaper.


In 1990, Marc Bohan became the fashion director of Norman Hartnell in London. He remained until 1992, unable to reverse Hartnell's falling fortunes, and now designs only under his own name.

He was there for 30 years? Woah I never knew that...I always imagined YSL being there for like twenty years. And JPG asking for the job twice is pretty funny actually :p

I don't actually know for sure... I can't say I'm a big fan of Dior to truly know
I was just doing some quick research for this section, and the info I gathered is based on what I read at Wikipedia and the French article up there^ (if my translation is correct)

I hear anyway you're not supposed to trust Wiki.. because anyone can alter the information on the website

Original caption: Tunics were a feature in the Marc Bohan collection created for Christian Dior-Paris this season. Among them was this brilliant cocktail dress in yellow gazar. The tailored look is softened by the white embroidered underskirt of the fashion.

Dior Couture Silk Chiné "Bouffant" Ball Gown c.1961

This is the grandest of all couture and fine fashion, that one could only dream of- and yet here it is. From the Leslie Caron collection, is this simply breathtaking Marc Bohan for Christian Dior Modéle Original couture ball gown, of 1961. The shape, fabric, style, and provenance, make this a priceless piece of couture history.

The incredible "bouffant" style ball gown is fashioned from a luminous raspberry silk chiné with a hint of magenta, woven throughout with deeper tones of "mottled-effects-" which resembles the style of an impressionist painting. The gown has been cut loosely to the elongated bodice, and reaches down to the puff-style skirt- which is a lavish array of finely gathered and constructed fabric. The gown's skirt is raised slightly to the front hemline, and lengthens towards the back, where a slight train effect is created.

It has been decorated with a series of bows made from the chine material, down the front of the bodice- notice how there is no need, whatsoever, for surface decorations- as the focus for this gown should be directed soley to its amazing shape, and obviously Bohan had the same views when constructing this.

The gown is fully lined in deep raspberry silk, and fastens to the center front with press-stud snaps. Within the puff skirt, there is a starched tulle lining to help provide & maintain the correct shape at all times.

Accompanying this gown, is an extremely rare, never before seen (publicized), privately kept, image of Ms. Caron wearing the gown, it is an original & professionally taken.

Dior Summer Floral Tunic Dress Ensemble c.1964

Stylish, and easy to wear linen creation by Marc Bohan for Christian Dior of the Spring/Summer collection of 1964, personally owned and worn by Ms. Leslie Caron.. This Dior labeled and numbered 44221, coloful two-piece set, comprises of a richly printed, Oriental-inspired tunic dress, which features an array of vivid "Japanese-garden" type spring blooms and plants, on a background of bold pink linen.

The tunic overdress fastens at the side with large pink buttons, and buttons from the waist up are functional, whilst the ones down from the waist are decorative- this is quite a clever design features, as there are button holes, but they are lined so the wearer wouldn't full fasten the dress to the hem. The dress is worn over green linen harem pants, which are diagonally cut at the hem in, yet again, a very unique and interesting manner.

Together with this marvelous summer set, is an image of Ms. Caron wearing it on location in Jamaica for the making of the film Father Goose (co-starring Carry Grant) from 1964! It is labeled "Christian Dior - London Ltd. / UK Regd. / Modele Original / Made in England" and numbered. The ensemble is also labeled S/M - but please go by the measurements provided, only! Fully lined in cream tissue silk.

Dior Velvet Coat & Skirt Ensemble, c.1968-70

Luxurious fall/winter ensemble, designed by Marc Bohan for Christian Dior. Bohan has greatly incorporated the popular British-fashion movement of the era, into this rare & dazzling set! Masculine elegance was the main element of the "very-Brit look," and Bohan being the head of Dior until 1989, made great use of this new & innovative era for fashion.

With important celebrities/actresses such as Dianna Rig & Leslie Caron showcasing his works, it could only be said that Bohan captured the fineness of Britain. In 1967, Caron even wore a pair of jeweled overalls, which were designed by Bohan for Dior, to the Golden Globes in 1969—clearly stating this look of masculinity for the female form, was a hit!

Our ensemble is possibly haute-couture, as there is hand-sewing and a non-boutique label. Thus, without a doubt, it gleams with the "British-look," through it's strong appearance & innovative design. It comprises of a full length button-front coat and a matching skirt. Both are fashioned from the same shade of hunter-green plush velvet & decorated only by the use of metallic gold thread. The thread has been sewn onto the velvet in a counterpane manner—a very traditional pattern used in the designing of glass & quilts made in Britain. Also having tuxedo lapels with threads sewn to follow along the edges & shape of the cut.

Both pieces are fully lined in avacado silk, even the pockets, and it's labeled Christian Dior / London and stamped with the number 59495. The skirt fastens to both sides with zippers and hook-and-eye closeures, whilst the coat fastens by the use of front buttons.

Dior Brocatelle Evening Ensemble c.1968

Regal, Marc Bohan for Christian Dior Paris, dress and overcoat evening ensemble, c.1968. Fashioned from silk brocatelle, done in warm shades of silver, gold, and pink. The material's texture is a decadent choice for such a luxurious ensemble, as the plush padding and glowing warmth, add to it's look of opulence.

Both pieces are decorated with the elaborate aurora borealis type gems, and also with gold textured baubles, all of which have been heavily applied to the areas in a dense array. A magnificent feature of this ensemble, is the obvious textures it bears—its heavily dimensional fabric, faceted & finely shaped beads, and finely a third choice of trim Bohan chose to use, being the mink edged sleeves, they all blend beautifully together to give the look of extravagance (in a tasteful way of course)!

Labeled 'Christian Dior - Paris / Made in France' and is a numbered piece. Both pieces are fully lined in petal pink silk, and the gown is also backed behind the silk lining with tulle petticoats for shaping. The hemlines are also weighted, the effect this has on the coat is smashing! As when the wearer promenades whilst wearing it, it gently billows to open, exposing the beautiful pink interior!
