The text traces the travails, efforts, and world-class achievements in clothing, style, and love of life in this high society treasury. Christian Dior is very highly recommended reading for students of 20th Century fashion history in general, and the influential contributions of Christian Dior in particular.

When Christian Dior’s New Look appeared in February 1947, it became an instant success and the nipped-in waist and full-skirted silhouette remained the leading style until the mid-1950s. As the decade progressed, the dominant silhouette became progressively straighter and slimmer, and as fashion began to look to the new teenager for inspiration, the elegance and formality of the early part of the decade began to lessen.

Christian Dior presented his first collection to a bleak, post-war Paris in 1947. It caused a sensation. The dazzling clothes, cut to emphasize the female form and made out of seemingly endless metres of luxurious embroidered and beaded cloth, were revolutionary. Dior's collection was pronounced "The New Look" and made him a star. This illustrated book is based entirely on documents and photographs from the first decade of the House of Dior, a time when Dior himself supervized every detail of his enterprise, and created a team of devoted collaborators and a large atelier of adoring seamstresses. He not only drew every dress himself but also fitted most of his clients, among whom were Marlene Dietrich, Ingrid Bergman and the Duchess of Windsor. Until his early death in 1957, the modest and unassuming Dior was adored by everybody whose life he touched. This book celebrates the glorious days when haute couture was about elegance rather than rank sensationalism.

Christian Dior: The Early Years 1947-1957 by Esmeralda de Rethy (daughter of Princess Liliane of Belgium who was one of Christian Dior's very first clients) and fashion historian Jean-Louis Perreau is an incredible, superbly illustrated and informative coffee table book providing a vivid fashion record perfectly capturing the founding of an empire of style in the post-World War II decade. Full-page photographs, some color, some black and white, many nearly half a century old, adorn the pages along with Dior's original sketches and commentary. The text traces the travails, efforts, and world-class achievements in clothing, style, and love of life in this high society treasury. Christian Dior is very highly recommended reading for students of 20th Century fashion history in general, and the influential contributions of Christian Dior in particular.

I own a lot of Dior books and this is one of my favourites. The best thing about this book is the copies of Dior's original sketches placed next to the finished garment. You can almost see his thought process. The photographs of himself and his atelier at work, of the shows, and the mourning of his untimely death give a beautiful insight to the life of this amazing man.

Esmeralda is great story teller. The text uses human dramas and detailed character stody to tell the story.

Good work!
