Description


These memoirs, originally published in French in 1956, are the intimate story of the incredible trajectory of an artist who became the most famous fashion designer in the world—it’s an essential reference guide to the world of Christian Dior. He combines childhood memories with discussions of the inner workings of a design house, the challenging role of models, the dazzle of fashion shows, and a demanding cosmopolitan clientele to create a portrait of the intrigue, anguish, and joy of his profession. 

​Las presentes memorias, publicadas originariamente en francés en 1956 y en castellano en 1957, son el relato íntimo y personal de la fantástica trayectoria seguida por un artista que, tras períodos de incertidumbre, se convirtió en el modisto más famoso del mundo. Este libro es una referencia esencial a la hora de encontrar una respuesta para el universo de Christian Dior. Como comenta Jean-Luc Dufresne en su prefacio, 'todas las preguntas que el público se hace sobre el misterio Dior quedan resueltas de forma exhaustiva en esta obra, ya que ofrece al lector el vocabulario, los códigos y las técnicas de ese mundo fascinante de la alta costura'. La organización interna de una casa de modas, el difícil papel de las maniquíes, el deslumbrante marco de las exhibiciones, los caprichos y las exigencias de una clientela cosmopolita, el riesgo de copia o plagio de los modelos; todo lo que constituye el complicado mecanismo que va de la idea al vestido, está plasmado en interesantes capítulos en los que el autor, junto a recuerdos de su infancia y juventud, pone al descubierto las intrigas, angustias y satisfacciones que jalonan su profesión.
