In 1949, he earned a Neiman Marcus Award for Distinguished Service in the Field of Fashion. He dressed some of the most elegant celebrities of his time. Fath apprenticeships launched the careers of Hubert de Givenchy and Guy Laroche. Sadly, the magic ended abruptly with his death in 1954. Two years later, his widow closed the couture line. Although his career was cut short, Fath had a profound impact on popular culture. He helped launch the New Look of the late 1940s. And unlike most designers, Fath kept meticulous records of his design sketches. In partnership with Rita Watnick of Lily et Cie, we proudly offer a rare chronicle of historic significance: the only archival record of the House of Fath. This museum-quality collection includes 26 volumes of original sketchbooks from 1948 through 1956, with more than 3,400 couture designs. The collection also includes three exquisite Fath haute couture dresses, each with its accompanying sketch. With this archive, the possibilities are monumental. Endow a wing of your favorite museum with a comprehensive overview of fashion history or launch your own research center to inspire the Faths of tomorrow.

I figured before I reveal my love for this next Dior Homme piece , I should get into the horrible service during my last visit to Dior Homme (NY).
While I shop at Dior Homme in bits, I expect that when I need help in a empty store on a week day, I get help. (I don't need move the earth help) Just Help.
After a short visit to Barneys with my gal pal, where we tried on a few pork pie hats, and picked up a pair of heels. we made our way to Dior Homme.
The sales guy in Dior Homme, probably coked out of his mine, was so rude and not helpful. And the little help I got , I had to pry out of his hands.
I saw a pair high top Dior Homme sneakers in Barneys' , Dior Homme (NY) had the low cut version. When I inquired about the hightops, the sales associate ignored me. I had to tap him to get his attention. He said they didn't have them, which is fine...he gave this long explanation about why Barneys had the exclusive!
He did not even offer to check the Las Vegas Store or have them shipped from Europe. It is extremely hard for me to find shoes I must have and these hightops were it for me!
My pal then suggested another pair of shoes, which I hated. I still tried them, to see what they look like with my skinny jeans. An absolute disaster. I struggled for 10 mins before the sales rep brought a shoe slide
I just couldn't take it, I left the store without a purchase.... I promised never to return....... (that might change)
For record, my pal made a purchase for her lover.

UNTITLED #1 by Yosh Han is described as a languid, abstract dreamscape done in chalk pastels. Pools of subtle color melt into each other – a dusky blue cloud of myrrh eases into the creamy golds of vanilla and honey. The hazy sunset-pink glow of Turkish rose is swirled with the deep, but muted, earth tones of amber, clove and cinnamon.
Inspired by the mellow richness of caramel, the ever inventive Yosh Han has created a fragrance with no sharp edges -- sweet and subtle and as soft and plushy as a cat’s fur. So soothing and hushed that at first it seems simple, but as we are drawn into it, the shimmering intricacies of texture reveal themselves: the warm, homespun softness of contentment; a brief, fluttering wisp of cool tranquility. Quiet, but full of nuance. Gentle and comforting.
UNTITLED #1 by Yosh Han notes
waterlily, vanilla, myrrh, oakmoss, tunisian amber, cardamom, clove, cinnamon, Turkish rose, cedar
