Dior By Marc Bohan - 1961-1989 By Jérôme Hanover

Dior started his great fashion house in 1947, Yves Saint Laurent took over in 1958, and Marc Bohan started designing Dior from 1961-1989. Published last month this is the story of how Marc’s designs re-grounded the house of Dior on its original foundation of soft, ladylike, feminine silhouettes, which appealed to women around the world, from American socialites and international celebrities to royalty.

Dior by Marc Bohan is the third volume in aseries of books devoted to each designer of a couture house, the ultimate compendium of the most memorable haute couture creations conceived and handcrafted by the renowned house of Dior since its inception. Carefully conserved in the world’s great museums and institutions, these fashion treasures have been photographed and exclusively compiled for this indispensable collection.

Fashion journalist Jérôme Hanover recounts details and anecdotes behind many selected pieces, providing insight into Bohan’s inspirations and influences throughout nearly thirty years designing for the house of Dior.
