Additional Information

Christian Dior (1905–1957) rocketed to fame with his first collection in 1947 when the “New Look” took the world by storm. This charming autobiography gives fascinating and detailed insight into the workings of a great fashion house, while revealing the private man behind the high-profile establishment. It is also a unique portrait of classic Paris haute couture of the 1950s. Dior details his childhood in Granville, the family and friends closest to him, and his most difficult years and sudden success, as well as his sources of inspiration and creative processes.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

This book is simply written but Dior gives us absolutely ALL insider info about what happens in his atelier during preparations for his new collection. It starts with his scetches and ends with front row seatting Schedule. I loved it! It really explains complicated Systems and rules of a couture house and is excellent source of information for Fashion lovers.
It's truly amazing to have the sense that Christian Dior is speaking intimately to you as he describes his life, career, thoughts and feelings, especially since we are separated from him by so many years and locale but not by our artistic passions! I admit I was surprised that a fashion designer could be articulate beyond trade jargon. Brilliant man. This book is a treasure! Loved it!
A rather well written and fascinating description of life in high fashion from the pen of one of the greats. I do not know if Dior had a ghost writer assist, but this text is eminently readable.
