Christian Dior Haute Couture’s most stunning creations for a new book entitled “Dior Couture Patrick Demarchelier”.
Dior is one of the most revered names in fashion, the archetype of the Parisian couture house. Famous for launching the “New Look,” Christian Dior’s landmark first collection that marked a sea change in women’s dress after the Second World War, Dior is known today for its exquisite couture line of dramatic dresses.
This book comprises a portfolio of portraits of over one hundred incredible gowns from the entire era of Christian Dior haute couture, with pieces from the first collection by Dior himself in 1947, including creations by successors Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan and John Galliano.
All of the images were shot by Patrick Demarchelier, in locations including Shanghai; Times Square, New York; the Paris Opera House, over the past two years.
“When you have a great picture, there’s no point in doing anything more.”
