Christian Dior - destiny : the authorized biography

Pochna, Marie France, 1941-2021
Books
In 1947, when Christian Dior's model spun her wasp-waisted skirt and tipped a hat over one eye, the iconic designer became an instant celebrity. His groundbreaking 'new look' was quintessentially Parisian - the perfect combination of fanciful and elegant that glorified the female form and seduced his international clientele. Yet it was by mere chance that Dior-hapless in the face of personal and professional tragedy-met a friendly priest who helped him to rebuild his faith and to find the strength to chart his glorious destiny. He went on to upend the downtrodden post-war era with his joie de vivre and his pursuit of a single goal: to make women 'not only more beautiful, but happier' through the proportions of his marvelous designs and a color palette that reflected the Parisian sky.
