WEB: The Youth of Dior

RETELLING THE STORY of christian dior

Web Design & Code: Fashion brand storytelling

A parallax scrolling website of one of the world's well known fashion designers, Christian Dior. The website is a visual narrative of Dior's childhood spent in Granville, the rose gardens in his parent's home. How would users view the narrative through interactive visual metaphors? (For example, the picture frames can be moved by the mouse and the stars are animated to rotate clock-wise.) How has the web interfaces and technologies mediate user perception of fashion history? The web interface acts as a mediating boundary between user & story. 

What could Dior have seen in the rose garden that inspired him to make the dresses and perfumes that we know today? What magical metaphors inspired his childhood in France?
