Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams

In 2017, the House of Dior celebrates its 70th anniversary. Christian Dior’s 1947 debut introduced the iconic New Look, marking a resurgence of Parisian luxury post-war. This book showcases seventy memorable creations by Dior and successors like Yves Saint Laurent and Raf Simons, meticulously photographed. It delves into Dior’s recurring themes: architectural fashion, historical and artistic influences (Versailles, Impressionism), colour use, and inspiration from gardens. Notable muses and clients like Princess Diana and Charlize Theron are featured alongside sketches and runway shots, captured by esteemed photographers including Irving Penn and Richard Avedon. An encapsulation of Dior’s enduring influence in fashion history.
