At the time of this design, i had no idea about Christian Dior's 'New Look', therefore there are no similarities in approach/design or homages to the man himself.
This little number is more like something you might find in New Look.
But i like to think this was way ahead of it's time- I mean, you wouldn't look out of place stepping out into Hyde Park and strolling past the daffodils in this cheery one-piece short suit, teamed with classic footless tights and pink pumps. It's asymetric also- which is so now- scarf, ponytail and bangle all off to one side! Love it!
