Dior: Moments of Joy
“Women, with their ever-sharp instincts, understood that I not only wanted to make them more beautiful, but happier too.”—Christian Dior
Since 1947, through its haute couture and fragrance collections, the House of Dior has enhanced the lives of women by bringing them moments of resplendent beauty. On the radiant faces of Dior’s models and muses, and through the exuberance of its creative studios and runway shows, joy at Dior shines like a bouquet of fireworks and luminous smiles. Through a unique selection of iconic fashion photography and behind-the-scenes images from fashion shows and workshops, this beautifully-crafted volume traces Dior’s recurring themes of creativity, the inspiration of nature, friendship, and success. Drawing from Dior’s own archives and from the history of photography, the book presents privileged moments graced by the women and men of Dior who express the house’s eternal joie de vivre.
An inspiring text drawing from literature, philosophy and Dior’s unique history, celebrates the many facets of this exalted state, providing the perspective that resides at the heart of the beautiful book.
