Little Book of Dior
There's always been an extra sparkle around the House Of Christian Dior. The Parisian fashion brand's spectacular rise to the upper echelons of the haute couture scene is one of the most compelling stories of twentieth-century fashion. An art gallerist with a contemporary vision, Christian Dior's debut haute couture collection invented the 'new look' silhouette and revolutionized the way women dressed, shopped and saw themselves.
The Little Book of Dior is the beautifully illustrated story of Dior's early life including the brand's inception, the triumphs of the couture collections on the runway in Paris and its outings on Hollywood red carpets. Also detailed is the brand's journey after the death of its founder.
Dior was only helmed by its founder for a decade, but has flourished under the creative direction of some of the most storied names in fashion. In the present day, Maria Grazia Chiuri steers the brand as it stays true to its identity of opulence, femininity, drama and the creation of what Christian Dior called 'the complete look', from garments to perfume and shoes.
