Summary

Christian Dior's era-defining designs and enduring legacy are captured here in more than 50 of the fashion house's most iconic pieces.  

Dior redefined what fashion looked like in the post-war age and demanded glamour, femininity and excess to be the order of the day. His vision for seriously structured corsets tapering to dramatically full skirts with pleats for days earned the title 'The New Look', and it really was. His garments spoke of hope and beauty and were crafted with the utmost attention to detail. This beautifully illustrated book charts not only the work of the great man himself, but also those who stood at the helm after him, including the inimitable Yves Saint Laurent and John Galliano. 

The House of Dior has dressed everyone from Old Hollywood icons like Grace Kelly and Marlene Dietrich through to fictional fashion icon Carrie Bradshaw and music royalty Rihanna. Style Icon: Dior is a wonderful tribute to the romantic, lavish and elaborate designs of a beloved brand.
