Christian Dior was a French fashion designer who founded the iconic fashion house Dior in 1946.He was known for his elegant, feminine designs, and his use of luxurious fabrics and intricate details. This beautifully illustrated book for every lover of fashion includes never to be forgotten images of Christian Dior's designs, and illuminates the talent of the man who was France's most unpredictable and spectacular fashion designer. The book includes a detailed look at some of Dior's most important creations: The "New Look" silhouette - Dior's debut collection in 1947 featured a new silhouette that emphasized the female figure, with nipped-in waists, full skirts, and rounded shoulders. The Bar suit - this tailored suit was a cornerstone of Dior's early collections. The jacket featured a cinched waist, padded hips, and a deep V-neckline, while the skirt flared out from the hips to create a full, feminine silhouette. The Miss Dior dress - this elegant, off-the-shoulder cocktail dress was inspired by Dior's love of flowers. It featured a fitted bodice and a full, flared skirt, and it was often made in soft, romantic fabrics like silk and tulle.
