About The Book
In 1947 Christian Dior, aged 42, opened his own Couture House in Paris. His first Collection was nicknamed the ‘New Look’ by an American journalist and it launched him overnight into a spectacular and glamorous career which even he had never dreamed of and made his name into a household world.
Brigid Keenan gives a fascinating account of events leading up to that famous Collection, and tells how he coped with the overburdening responsibilities and pressures that came with success. A man of immense style and quiet charm, Dior was greatly influenced by memories of his childhood, particularly his mother, and the New Look was, he said, an attempt to put the clock back to the age of greace and femininity that he had known as a child.
When success came it was overwhelming, and he had to adapt his lifestyle to the public image of the house of Dior: But there was also Dior the man, and the book gives a revealing a sympathetic view of the ‘twin personalities’ of Christian Dior: the private individual, relaxing in the garden of his old mill house in the country, and the showman, the star of the Paris fashion scene, working night and day to create stunning new designs in his world-famous couture house.
The Dior Collections, brilliantly illustrated by the top fashion photographers of the day are described in detail by the author, who assesses their importance during the decisive post-war years and their influence on the fashion of the day.
Brigid Keenan has provided an authoritative view of Christian Dior — a truly remarkable man who epitomized the style of a bygone age.
