Dior by Gianfranco Ferre

Dior by Gianfranco Ferre


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 Ferre, with an architecture degree from Milan Polytechnic, was selected in 1989 as the new artistic director of the house of Dior. Ferre's odes to the essence of Christian Dior's style helped cement the iconography of the house for a new era. Known for his sense of architecture, love of feminine silhouettes, extravagance and opulence in bold colour and sumptuous fabrics, and dynamic draping, Ferre redefined the notion of "Dior" as a style, a code, a spirit. This beautiful volume showcases Gianfranco Ferre's most emblematic haute couture designs for Dior, from the AscotCecil Beaton collection of Autumn-Winter 1989 to the Indian Passion collection of Autumn-Winter 1996.
