How could you put Christian Dior (the man himself) as one of the top designers of all time. Aside from his "new look" he only lasted at Dior from 1947-1952 (his death). He is a great designer but by no means one of the greatest. He could have gotten there but he didn't have enough time....at least in my opinion!!!

Top designers of all time: 1. Coco Chanel
2. Yves Saint Laurent
3. Cristobal Balenciaga
4. Karl Lagerfeld
5. Givenchy


Top designers CURRENT LIST: 1. Karl Lagerfeld
2. Marc Jacobs
3. John Galliano
4. Miuccia Prada
5. Alber Elbaz

Coco Chanel... no, no, don't believe the hype! Coco was a con. She suppressed the feminine form and did little more than put a label on shoddy sportswear and ugly dresses. Plus, she was horrible to her mannequins.

Rudi Gernreich
Bill Gibb
Callot Soeurs
Ossie Clark
André Courrèges
Mariano Fortuny
Bonnie Cashin
Madame Gres
Charles James
Jean Desses

Present:

Please do a search , Afreekan .
please forgive me, I am new. I should have known that a topic like this would have been discussed before. To respond to Galianoboy's comments about Dior; He gave us the New Look, what more can you ask for. If the Beatles only gave us SGt. Pepper's or Nas only gave us Illmatic, they still will be considered one of the greats. Nahmean?

Please have a prize.

Other than that; Kit's list seems very good, cut Dior Homme for me though...
