The ultimate in French style…

Annie Goetzinger brings Parisian fashion to life with sumptuous art. Her graphic novel recreates the debut of Christian Dior, whose opulent fantasies offer an escape from struggling postwar France.

Deskripsi

In February of 1947, the crème de la crème of Paris haute couture have flocked to see Christian Dior’s debut fashion show. In a flurry of corolla shaped skirts, the parade of models file down the runway and the mesmerized audience declares the show a triumph. When Clara—a freshly hired chronicler and guide to the busy corridors of the brand-new fashion house—is hand-picked by Dior to be a model, she knows her life will never be the same. A biography docudrama that marries fiction with the story of one of the greatest couturiers in history, this work is a breathless and stunning presentation of Christian Dior’s greatest designs, beautifully rendered by bestselling artist Annie Goetzinger.

    The writing is simplistic but the art if fabulous.

    How serendipitous it was to read this book at the same time I read Mrs. 'arris Goes to Paris. Both take on Dior and fashion and Paris as they were, and, read together, complement each other like a good wine with a delicious entree. The story is simple: a young poor girl is plucked from the crowd to become a fabulous Dior model. It's the stuff of fairy tales, with the girl sent out into the world of the rich and famous where she finds a suitably rich husband and lives a grand life. But the strength of the book is in the illustrations that make this unusual graphic novel, illustrations of amazing dresses and hats and skirts and hairdos. It's a lovely little peek into a world that doesn't exist any more. And I'm glad I got to visit it.

    I don't know anything about Dior except that his dresses are gorgeous; I'm especially in love with his little daytime dresses with jackets. This made all the information in this graphic about the beginning of Dior's breakout collection through the eyes of a new model very new to me and I didn't realize the model was a fictional character until the end of the book which does make the story a little confusing. However, the inside look at the fashion industry after WWII and the early 50s is amazingly eye-opening and so very different from today and yet in regards to the false feminine perception of perfection disturbingly the same. I really enjoyed the look inside this world during this era and would say the book is mostly about the industry and Dior's dresses and influence than about the man himself. However, the book's pi?ce de r?sistance is the breathtaking artwork. An entirely beautiful book which captures the pure brilliant beauty of the dresses and designs in a unique way. The book will be appreciated by all, but somehow I think I missed out a bit by not knowing the subject matter better beforehand. Knowledgable Christian Dior enthusiasts will come away the most inspired from this gorgeous book worthy of adding to any collection.
