Dior Couture Patrick Demarchelier

— Author Ingrid Sischy — Publisher Rizzoli — Presentation In Dior Couture, a work born of a meeting between one of the most prestigious fashion designers and a legendary fashion house, Patrick Demarchelier has put together a fabulous retrospective chronicle of the Dior Haute Couture collections, from the first catwalk show in 1947 right through to the present day.
Patrick Demarchelier has always admired Dior Haute Couture. For him, it creates "unique pieces, like actual sculptures". This led to his desire to pay homage to the marvellous splendour and expertise of the House of Dior designs.
Enhanced by Patrick Demarchelier, the designs created by Christian Dior himself and his successors, Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan and John Galliano, prove to be modern and timeless; a kind of magic that flirts with eternity.
From Shanghai to Times Square, from the grand staircase at the Garnier opera house to the gardens at the Rodin museum; all these places so dear to the House of Dior are where Patrick Demarchelier captured the quintessential Dior style brought to life by some of the world's most beautiful women, from Charlize Theron to Gisele Bündchen.
