Product Description

Review

'Vogue On Designers - a new, compact series of books, small enough to carry in your handbag but still hardbacked - is destined to take pride of place in many a carefully edited library. The series stands out for the unique access all the writers have had to the magazine's archive of photography and illustrations. The Condé Nast library has offered up an unprecedented quantity and quality of images, shot by everyone from Cecil Beaton to Mario Testino and Tim Walker. Thanks to Vogue having first charted the careers of these designers, their lives and works within its pages, there was a vast amount of original material for the writers to draw on, making this a dream project. Each of the four designers' stories comes back to life - the images of their collections acting as prompts, reminding us just how dramatic their impact has been on the way we dress. From detailing how hard the designers worked to how they lived with their visionary brilliance, the books made a captivating assessment of their power and their legacy today. These aren't vast coffee-table books to gather dust, but new fashion friends to be read, perused and revisited for inspiration.' --VOGUE, October

'Oh, we do love an affordable snippet of style and the new Vogue On series offers just that!' --Image Magazine, September 2012

'Four fabulous little books on four era-defining designers of the 20th century.' --The Mail on Sunday, 16th September 2012

'Like the girls modelling the exquisite clothes, the books are slim, enchanting and beautifully proportioned. The text is brief but informative, and laced with delicious quotes!' --Mail on Sunday, 7th October 2012

Format: Hardcover
Many of us who were alive in the sixties will have used 'Miss Dior' perfume or owned a Dior range lipstick even if we could not afford to wear haute couture. However, I for one knew very little about the man behind the label. This informative, well-written book fills in the gaps of a surprisingly short career. Christian Dior was, perhaps, fortunate to start his design business in 1947 when the war had just ended, fabric rationing had come to an end and women were tired of looking drab and making do. The photographs from the Vogue archives are fascinating and many of the classic and sophisticated dresses stand the test of time. It takes a genius to have started a brand that is a by-word for luxury and quality and has endured for more than half a century. This is a lovely book and makes such a change from the grey world of Kindle!

Format: Hardcover
This is a really well researched and well written book focussing on what was a very surprisingly short period of exceptional design work. I think that like most people I assumed that Dior had actively designed for decades rather than a relatively short period. The narrative brings out the personality and genius of the man. Excellent!

Format: Hardcover
Beautiful pictures and beautiful prose - a total delight. A must have for any fashionista or wanna-be fashioista who's intrested in the history of one of the most infulential designers/brands.

I prefer larger books so that put me off from the start. I have many Dior books, most of which are more interesting than this one. I would not recommend, there are better books out there with lots more pictures if you are interested in Dior.
