Christian Dior (1905–1957) rocketed to fame with his first collection in 1947 when the “New Look” took the world by storm. This charming autobiography gives fascinating and detailed insight into the workings of a great fashion house, while revealing the private man behind the high-profile establishment. It is also a unique portrait of classic Paris haute couture of the 1950s. Dior details his childhood in Granville, the family and friends closest to him, and his most difficult years and sudden success, as well as his sources of inspiration and creative processes.
