From the New Look show on February 12, 1947, which revolutionized the world of fashion, to the present day, the book Dior Catwalk offers an unprecedented panorama of Dior creations over the years. Following the couturier’s passing in 1957, the story of his House would continue to be written by his successors: Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons and Maria Grazia Chiuri. Journalist and fashion critic Alexander Fury offers a unique opportunity to capture the evolution of the House’s style, developing profiles of its various creative directors. Images of Dior's haute couture and ready-to-wear collections are collected together in one volume, arranged in chronological order. More than one thousand one hundred shots taken during the shows were chosen to illustrate each season’s emblematic looks. These sometimes rare images allow us, in addition to the clothing, to discover other elements of the show settings. On top of this, the faces of the mannequins, their make-up and accessories are carefully indexed, making this publication a genuine reference book.
