Of all the great Parisian couture houses, Dior is perhaps the most famous and prestigious in the world, embodying Christian Diors sublime vision of femininity. Following Yves Saint Laurent and Marc Bohan, who had both been hired by Christian Dior himself, the Italian couturier Gianfranco Ferr, with an architecture degree from Milan Polytechnic, was selected in 1989 as the new artistic director of the house of Dior.
Ferrs odes to the essence of Christian Diors style helped cement the iconography of the house for a new era. Known for his sense of architecture, love of feminine silhouettes, extravagance and opulence in bold color and sumptuous fabrics, and dynamic draping, Ferr redefined the notion of Dior as a style, a code, a spirit.
This beautiful volume showcases Gianfranco Ferrs most emblematic haute couture designs for Dior, from the AscotCecil Beaton collection of Autumn-Winter 1989 to the Indian Passion collection of Autumn-Winter 1996. Fashion journalist Alexander Fury eloquently explores Ferrs vision to balance his own taste and that of Christian Dior, reinterpreting Diors elegant style for the 1990s and a new generation of clients and fashion observers.
