The Incredible Dior Photography Book

Florence Muller is an art and fashion historian and curator of numerous important exhibitions. She is a professor at the Institut Francais de la Mode and also the author of many publications on fashion, art, and design. Reaching beyond the intimate setting of the fashion show, in this incredible book (published by Rizzoli) the photographer paints a portrait of haute couture that takes the couturier’s intention to enchant the public and elevates it to the level of the sublime.

Published to accompany the Dior and Fashion Photography exhibition presented at the Musée Christian Dior in Granville, France, this lavish volume presents a wealth of gorgeous photographs that bring the character of the couturier’s dresses to life, with each photographer interpreting them in his or her unique style.
