Item description for Christian Dior and Germany 1947-1957 by Adelheid Rasche...

Christian Dior pulled off a coup that would revolutionise the international fashion scene when he showed his first collection on 12 February 1947. Thus was the 'New Look' born, which made his Paris fashion house world-famous overnight. Today Dior's early collections symbolise the rebirth of Paris haute couture after 1945. Within only a few years Christian Dior rose to rule over a flourishing luxury empire and was celebrated throughout the world as the monarch of fashion until his sudden death in October 1957. His twenty-two haute couture collections - including the celebrated A and H as well as Tulip lines - comprising some three thousand models, represent a design legacy that, more than any other, wrote 20th-century fashion history.

Reviews - What do customers think about Christian Dior and Germany 1947-1957?

Nostalgia par excellence  Jun 2, 2008
Visual treat. Christian Dior legacy in all its glamour and la belle epoque. Superbe. C'est magnifique.
Simply gorgeous  Jun 14, 2007
This huge, high-quality softbound volume is, in brief, a most fitting tribute to the great Christian Dior on the fiftieth anniversary of his death. The book is filled with superb full-page photography, mostly in black and white, of everything Dior, from his gowns to his accessories to his atelier in Paris and his fashion shows. As the book's title implies, the focus is on Dior's connections with Germany in his great years, 1947-1957. Several of the photographs feature the immortal Berliner Marlene Dietrich in Dior creations. Altogether a wonderful book!
