American Dior

"With the introduction of the New Look, Dior quickly became American fashion’s ultimate agent provocateur, playing on the country’s appetite for newness and for French savoir-faire," according to a new book debuting this week from Assouline.


"Christian Dior lived the American dream. From the first time he set foot in New York, the legendary designer had a special relationship with the United States, and he may even be more important in America than in France."


"In one gesture, he had given women a whole new shape. Dior’s long, voluminous skirts were more extravagant and feminine than anything seen in fashion for decades."

Compared to the upcoming Taschen tomes, this one is a relative bargain at $70.

I love the Dior New Look! The museum at his childhood home is the stuff dreams are made of: full of the most chic and elegant creations. Such a shame I had to fall down the stairs - ruined the effect!

Interesting to see things behind the scenes. Fashion photography is just magical, and Dior's dresses in these photos is no exception!
