Every haute couture collection is represented, as are ready-to-wear collections from the arrival of John Galliano onwards. Complete with an introduction and designer profiles by Alexander Fury, this book offers a unique opportunity to chart the development of one of the most influential and luxurious fashion brands of all time and discover rarely seen creations. With over 1,100 images, this treasure trove of inspiration will be the must-have reference for all fashion professionals and Dior fans.
