This volume features the Royal Ontario Museum's collection of Christian Dior couture, accompanied by sketches and material from Christian Dior Heritage along with photographs of the collection taken by world-renowned Dior photographer Laziz Hamani. In addition to showcasing Dior's most striking designs, from daytime to evening wear, the book examines how the lighthearted and contoured "New Look" swept away the gloom and gravity of the wartime silhouette, and explains the innovative dressmaking techniques behind key Dior signatures. Christian Dior is an essential read for anyone interested in fashion, art, culture, and history.
