Dior Mitzah Fall 2011 Collection was inspired by Mitzah Bricard, the audacious and glamorous muse to Christian Dior. Born in Paris to an English mother and Austrian father, Mitzah Bricard captured the fascination of Christian Dior at the early stages of the house. She was responsible for the Dior hat collection and played a key role in advising and influencing the couturier on many aspects of the brand especially the creation of the ―New Look.
She was known for her love of leopard, the color lilac, and over-the-top jewelry. Mitzah could turn the ordinary into stylish.
“Ms. Bricard is one of those rare people whose only reason for living is elegance, ” Monsieur Dior said of his muse.
The collection, features a limited edition 5-Couleurs Eyeshadow palette covered in the iconic leopard pattern, two Vernis shades with similar earthy hues, and a shimmery brown Diorshow mascara.
