This book gathers together, for the first time, every Dior haute couture collection, including also ready-to-wear collections after the arrival of John Galliano (when ready-to-wear presentations took on a new importance), and the first two collections designed by creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri, appointed in 2016. It offers a unique opportunity to chart the development of one of the world s most famous fashion brands and discover rarely seen collections. This definitive publication opens with a concise history of the house of Dior before exploring the collections themselves, which are organized chronologically. Each new era in Dior s history is inaugurated by a brief overview and biography of the new designer, while individual collections are introduced by a short text unveiling their influences and highlights and illustrated with carefully curated catwalk images. A rich reference section, including an extensive index, concludes the book. After Chanel, Dior is the second volume in a series of high-end, cloth-bound books that offer a complete and unrivalled overview of the collections of the world s top fashion houses through original catwalk photography.Table of ContentsIntroduction: Looking To The New 1947: S/S 1947: Haute Couture The New Look ( Corolle and 8 Lines) A/W 1947 1948: Haute Couture The New Look Pushed to Extremes : 1948 S/S 1948: Haute Couture The Zig-Zag & Envol Lines A/W 1948 1949: Haute Couture The Ligne Ailée (Winged Line) 1949: S/S 1949 Haute Couture The Trompe L il Line A/W 1949 1950: Haute Couture The Milieu du Siècle (Mid-Century) Collection 1950: S/S 1950 Haute Couture The Ligne Verticale (Vertical Line) A/W 1950 1951: Haute Couture The Ligne Oblique (Oblique Line) S/S 1951: Haute Couture The Ligne Naturelle (Natural Line) A/W 1951 1952: Haute Couture The Ligne Longue (Long Line) S/S 1952: Haute Couture The Ligne Sinueuse (Sinuous Line) A/W 1952 1953: Haute Couture The Ligne Profilée (Profile Line) S/S 1953: Haute Couture The Ligne Tulipe (Tulip Line) A/W 1953 1954: Haute Couture The Ligne Vivante (Living Line) 1954 S/S 1954 Haute Couture: The Ligne Muguet (Lily of the Valley Line) A/W 1954 1955: Haute Couture The H Line 1955 S/S 1955: Haute Couture The A Line A/W 1955 1956: Haute Couture The Y Line 1956 S/S 1956: Haute Couture The Ligne Flèche (Arrow Line) A/W 1956 1957: Haute Couture The Ligne Aimant (Magnet Line) 1957 S/S 1957 Haute Couture The Ligne Libre (Free Line) A/W 1957 1958: Haute Couture The Ligne Fuseau (Spindle Line)
