The House of Dior’s definitive biography of “The King of Fashion,” fully updated and supplemented with chapters on his spirituality, personal relationships, and a contemporary perspective on his legacy.

Visionary fashion designer Christian Dior conjured up a new feminine silhouette from the cinders of World War II with his “New Look” that reinstated Paris as the heart of the fashion world. His revolutionary designs defined a fresh and quintessentially Parisian style—feminine, playful, voluptuous—the perfect mixture of fanciful and elegant.

Dior brought back a certain joie de vivre that particularly appealed to Americans, masterfully marketing the French tradition of taste and elegance, and building an extraordinary global empire. His devotees ranged from artful bohemians such Jean Cocteau, Cecil Beaton, and Marc Chagall to high society figures like the Duchess of Windsor, Rita Hayworth, and Greta Garbo. Christian Dior’s life was filled with friendships, music, and flowers, but his brilliant success and his meteoric rise to fame afforded him little rest. He died, at the height of his glory and only a decade into his career, at the age of 52.

This authoritative biography on the beloved and elegant designer—which draws on Dior’s private diaries, interviews, and archival documents from the fashion house—has been extensively updated and augmented with new chapters on his family, his personal relationships with both men and women, his spirituality, and a contemporary perspective on his fashion legacy that continues to inspire today.
