Dior Glamour Book Preview-Explore Dior’s Divine Decade

Step inside one of the most ground-breaking periods in the history of couture with Dior’s new book, which focuses on what it describes as the label’s “Divine Decade”. From 1952 until 1962, photographer Mark Shaw worked closely with the fashion house, documenting all that he saw – from intimate shows and fittings to shots of socialites and actresses posing in some of the brand’s most spectacular and dramatic gowns.

The results were initially published in Life magazine, but the book – entitled Dior Glamour – showcases a far more extensive look at Shaw’s collection. The pages are filled with over 130 photographs which span catwalk show rehearsals (featuring a pensive Christian Dior himself perched on the front row), era-defining models and beautiful archive shots of Dior couture ensembles being worn on the streets of Paris.
