DIOR GLAMOUR: 1952-1962
by Mark Shaw
In this book, the legendary photographer Mark Shaw communicates Dior’s message chronicling his experience with the fashion creator and capturing his collections from the 1950s and ’60s. His photographs reproduce the glamour of the time and his portraits “describe” the most extraordinary fashion of the era – models, actresses, social moments, and, of course, the haute couture all designed by Dior. Shaw’s work serves as an unrivaled source of such great fashion moments; giving the sense of context he has changed the way of fashion photography forever. In this book appear about 200 color and black-and-white photographs, some of them recently discovered in a secret vault of his estate.
