Little Book of Dior is the pocket-sized and beautifully illustrated story of 70 years of opulent fashion.

Christian Dior's spectacular rise to the upper echelons of the Parisian fashion world is one of the most compelling stories of twentieth-century fashion. Dior's debut collection in 1947 invented the New Look silhouette and revolutionized the way women dressed, shopped and saw themselves.

Recounting Christian Dior's early life, the brand's inception, the triumphs of the couture collections on the catwalk and the red carpet, and the fashion house's evolution under Christian Dior's creative direction successors - Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferre, John Galliano, Bill Gaytten, Raf Simons and Maria Grazia Chiuri - Little Book of Dior is a stylish gift for any lover of fashion.
