Dior by Gianfranco Ferré
All prices include VAT
Of all the great Parisian couture houses, Dior is perhaps the most famous and prestigious in the world, embodying Christian Dior’s sublime vision of femininity. Following Yves Saint Laurent and Marc Bohan, who had both been hired by Christian Dior himself, the Italian couturier Gianfranco Ferré, with an architecture degree from Milan Polytechnic, was selected in 1989 as the new artistic director of the house of Dior.
This beautiful volume showcases Gianfranco Ferré’s most emblematic haute couture designs for Dior, from the Ascot–Cecil Beaton collection of Autumn-Winter 1989 to the Indian Passion collection of Autumn-Winter 1996. Fashion journalist Alexander Fury eloquently explores Ferré’s vision to balance his own taste and that of Christian Dior, reinterpreting Dior’s elegant style for the 1990s and a new generation of clients and fashion observers.
Dior by Gianfranco Ferré is the fourth volume in an unprecedented series of books devoted to each designer of the house of Dior, the ultimate compendium of the most memorable haute couture creations conceived and handcrafted by the renowned couture house since its inception. Carefully conserved in the world’s great museums and institutions, these fashion treasures have been lovingly photographed by Laziz Hamani and exclusively compiled for this indispensable collection.
