Description


This richly illustrated entry in the stylish series tells the story of groundbreaking designer Christian Dior and the fashion house he founded.

Christian Dior's spectacular rise to the upper echelons of Parisian haute couture is one of the most compelling stories of twentieth-century fashion. An art gallerist with a contemporary vision, Dior's debut collection invented the "new look" silhouette and revolutionized the way women dressed, shopped, and saw themselves. The House of Dior's unique style blended the traditional, artisanal skills of the French fashion house--tailoring and intricate embellishment--with a modern sensibility. Dior himself helmed the company for only a decade, but it has flourished under the creative direction of some of the most storied names in fashion. Currently, Maria Grazia Chiuri steers the brand as it stays true to its identity--of opulence, femininity, drama, and what Christian Dior called "the complete look," from garments to perfume and shoes. Little Book of Dior tells the story of Christian Dior's early life, the brand's inception, the triumphs of the couture collections on the catwalk and the red carpet, and the brand's journey after the death of its founder.
