Christian Dior: the biography
Christian Dior, the French fashion designer, caused a worldwide sensation in 1947, in a Paris still groping to recover from the devastations of wartime occupation. Reintroducing the flowing, ankle-length skirt, Dior gave women back their long-lost sense of freedom, femininity, and joie de vivre. The House of Dior velvet covered walls and its gray carpeting, played host to aristocrats, stars of stage and film, and glitterati from around the world - the Duchess of Windsor, Olivia de Havilland, Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich, and Ingrid Bergman, to name a few.
