Large format. Publisher's description: A gorgeous celebration of one of the world's finest couture houses by a fashion journalist and archivist at Dior that provides unprecedented insight into the couture house's signature pieces and its definitive silhouettes -- both the originals created by the master and their reinterpretations by the famous designers that have followed in his wake, including the house's current designer-in-chief, Raf Simons. In 1947, Christian Dior's first collection -- his New Look -- amazed the world, reset the boundaries of modern elegance after years of wartime austerity, and earned him immortality. For decades, Dior's search for the perfect line and the ideal silhouette has been celebrated and imitated by couturiers of the first rank: Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferre, John Galliano, and now Raf Simons. Using inspired pairings of classic and contemporary photographs, Dior showcases this brilliant designer's elements of style for every generation since 1947. Seven thematic chapters examine outstanding Dior characteristics, including the silhouette, the evening gown, and the eternal muse -- the signature aspects of Dior that have continued to give the house unique distinction.
