Dior was started in Paris by designer Christian Dior in 1946, and it has gone on to become one of the most respected names in fashion. Dior is particularly well known for its exquisite Parisian couture. Famous for launching the "New Look", Dior's first collection marked a change in women's dress following World War II. Other than haute couture, Dior also produces ready-to-wear, men's couture, accessories, and perfume.
Dior Couture comprises a portfolio of portraits of over one hundred haute couture gowns by Dior, including gowns by Christian Dior himself. It was photographed by Patrick Demarchelier, one of fashion's best known photographers, and written by Ingrid Sischy. It was published by Rizzoli in November 2011.
