With archival materials unpublished for half a century, this books traces fashion from the thirties through the War years to the advent of Dior's New Look, launched in Paris in the Spring of 1947. Here is a true cultural history of the liberation of women's fashion, and of the impact of Christian Dior, the great pioneer in post-War design. All the glamour and sizzle of high fashion is presented in hundreds of evocative photos.
