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 himÃ¢â‚¬â€Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco FerrÃƒÂ©, John Galliano, Raf Simons, and Maria Grazia ChiuriÃ¢â‚¬â€are showcased here, atmospherically photographed by Laziz Hamani. Archival materialÃ¢â‚¬â€including design sketches by Christian DiorÃ¢â‚¬â€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 DiorÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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 DiorÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s spectacular fashion shows staged in EnglandÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s most luxurious stately homes, including at Blenheim Palace in 1954.
