Today, the creations of John Galliano, Donatella Versace, and Valentino dominate the catwalks…But in the 1940's, who were the most famous and most influential fashion designers? Who ruled the fashion world at that time?

Actually, there are a few fashion designers from the 1940's whose clothing lines are still thriving today, namely Christian Dior (whose emphasis of the hourglass figure took the fashion world by storm in the '40's), Nina Ricci and Anne Klein.

I remember Christian Dior. I really can't think of any other fashion designers though from the 40s. I was never really into that stuff as a child.

I think Dior is the most well known although I also recognise Nina Rici. A lot of the French coutoure houses were forced to close down because of the Nazi occupation and many designers fled to America, and, of course the raw materials were in short supply during the war.
