An elegant collection of Christian Dior’s maxims on style, women and inspiration, presented in a fashionable gift format.

Credited with creating some of the most luxurious and spectacular haute couture pieces of all time, Christian Dior became a fashion icon overnight in 1947 with the launch of his ‘New Look’ - sumptuous hourglass silhouettes that provided a welcome tonic to the austerity of wartime. Its wild success, and the global fame that ensued, was built on the designer’s subtle understanding of fashion, couture, style, elegance and women - a perspective and insight best revealed in Dior’s own words, which are gathered here for the first time.

Rightly described as the ‘Designer of Dreams’ in the recent blockbuster exhibition on the house of Dior that attracted millions of visitors the world over, Christian Dior was an unrivalled arbiter in the world of high fashion. Dior was generous with his advice on all things, from style and how to dress (‘No elegant woman follows fashion blindly’, he once declared), to his insights into the creative process, invaluable for any budding designer.

Presented in a beautiful package and accessible format, The World According to Christian Dior is the perfect gift for fashion fans, publishing on the occasion of the house’s 75th anniversary.

Patrick Mauriès is a writer and publisher of many notable titles on fashion and design, including Jewelry by Chanel, Cabinets of Curiosities, The World According to Karl and The World According to Coco, all published by Thames & Hudson. Jean-Christophe Napias is an author, translator and editor of books on dandies, dance music and camp culture. His recent publications include The World According to Karl, Choupette: The Private Life of a High-Flying Fashion Cat and The World According to Coco, all published by Thames & Hudson.
