Dior by Christian Dior, 1947-1957

— Author Olivier Saillard — Publisher Assouline — Presentation To mark Dior’s 70th anniversary, here is the first instalment of a series that explores the role played by each artistic director in the history of the great couture house. Dior by Christian Dior is, therefore, the very first volume focusing on Christian Dior’s most iconic haute couture creations. Richly illustrated with incredible photos from Laziz Hamani, this monumental work presents an entire selection of Christian Dior’s most important haute couture creations. Moreover, the scholarly text written by historian Olivier Saillard offers us a study that is inherently true to the inspiration, influence and vision of Dior, whilst also fondly recounting the details and anecdotes that lie hidden behind over eighty chosen pieces.
