Dior by Dior
"Christian Dior rocketed to fame with his first collection in 1947 when the 'New Look' took the world by storm. This autobiography gives insight into the workings of a great fashion house, while revealing the private man behind the high-profile establishment. It is also a portrait of the classic Paris haute couture of the 1950s and offers a rare glimpse behind the scenes. Dior details his childhood in Granville, the family and friends closest to him, his most difficult years and sudden success, as well as his sources of inspiration and creative processes." --Book Jacket.
