Christian Dior is celebrating its 70th anniversary by publishing a superb seven-volume anthology, each book dedicated to one of the seven couturiers who have been in charge of design at the Parisian luxury label since its creation in 1947: Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons and Maria Grazia Chiuri.

The first volume features the fashion label's iconic models - Christian Dior

The collection will be issued in 2017 and 2018 by publisher Assouline. The first volume features over 500 pages and is entitled 'Dior by Christian Dior 1947-1957'. It will be available from December in French, English and Chinese.
The volume is lavishly illustrated with pictures by Laziz Hamani, and contains a selection of Christian Dior's most important haute couture creations. The text by fashion historian Olivier Saillard tells the story of the eighty items chosen, including the renowned 'Bar' two-piece suite designed in 1947.

The fashion label said in a press release that Olivier Saillard’s text also analyses "Christian Dior's sources of inspiration, influences and visions."
