Capturing the highlights of a major V&A exhibition, this stunning volume celebrates the House of Dior from its foundation in 1947 to the present day. Haute-couture gowns by Christian Dior and the illustrious creative directors who followed him—Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons, and Maria Grazia Chiuri—are showcased here, atmospherically photographed by Laziz Hamani. Archival material—including design sketches by Christian Dior—and press and fashion photography provide colorful context, amplified by introductory texts to each section by V&A Fashion Curator Oriole Cullen. An opening chapter by Cullen looks at Dior’s creative collaborations with influential British manufacturers, and his most notable British clients, from Princess Margaret to author Nancy Mitford and ballet dancer Margot Fonteyn. It also revisits Dior’s spectacular fashion shows staged in England’s most luxurious stately homes, including at Blenheim Palace in 1954.

    PRAISE

    “Oriole Cullen and Connie Karol Burks offer up information, history, insights, and facts that most, if not all, of the other tomes based on the oeuvre of Maison Christian Dior seem to either gloss over or totally ignore. . . .  [T]he authors weave aspects of designers and brands that have never been written about in depth. . . . [T]his really is one of the must-have books dealing with the history of Maison Dior.  . . .The authors and curators have done a superb job of representing all concerned as well presenting the creations in the most straightforward and approachable way."
    Jeffrey Felner, New York Journal of Books
