A collection of the lavish and iconic gowns of Christian Dior, from the 1950s and '60s, captured by the legendary photographer Mark Shaw.
Iconic photographer Mark Shaw documented the ultra-exclusive Parisian fashion world, focusing on Paris's long-standing top couturier Christian Dior.
Shaw's photographs--some of the first fashion photographs ever shot in color--capture the most stunning and extraordinary fashion of the era.
This lavish volume embodies the glamour of that time, from rare moments of Christian Dior during fittings to editorial-style photographs of models, socialites, and actresses posing in Dior's ballgowns, day suits, and haute couture collections.
Shaw's photojournalistic style changed fashion photography forever: his approach was to photograph wide, giving the subject a sense of context, creating an environment as exquisitely transformative as the subject and garment.
With an eye for intimacy and opulence, this book features more than 200 color and black-and-white photographs, many never published before, having only recently been found in a secret vault by his estate.
Dior Glamour: 1952-1962 captures the drama and elegance of the period's style and will be treasured by lovers of photography, fashion, style, history, and cultured living.
