This week Dior once again made headlines at Paris Fashion Week - 70 years on from their landmark debut. To mark the iconic brand's anniversary, Sotheby’s Paris is launching its first online only sale dedicated to Dior’s costume jewellery. Love for this imaginative category of jewellery, and for its unrestricted opulence, is at the heart of these designs created by Dior, the majority originating from the Galliano period. The pieces' fascinating inspiration takes us from Victorian England to Maasai Africa, by way of the India of the Maharajas. This collection tells the story of the passion of successive Dior artistic directors and gives us an insight into their infinite vision and imagination. Click ahead to see highlights.
