On the 70th anniversary of Dior’s first ever collection – the iconic “New Look”, launched in February 1947 – Dior Catwalk charts Christian Dior’s fabled collections and those of his successors Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons and Maria Grazia Chiuri’s debut presentations for the house. Dior Catwalk offers a unique opportunity to chart the development of one of the world’s most famous fashion brands and discover rarely seen collections and previously unpublished images. Every Haute Couture collection from 1947 to 2017 is represented, as are ready-to-wear collections from the arrival of John Galliano onwards.
This definitive publication opens with a concise history of the house of Dior before exploring the collections themselves, which are organised chronologically. Each new era in Dior’s history is inaugurated with designer profiles, written by Alexander Fury, which consider each designer’s influences. With over 1,100 glorious images Dior Catwalk is a treasure trove of inspiration and is sure to be the must-have reference for all fashion professionals and Dior fans.
