Dior in Bloom

This unique book is a tribute to the floral inspirations in fashion and parfun of the fashion house Christian Dior. Dior in Bloom features a portfolio of rose portraits by renowned fashion photographer Nick Knight. Dior's famous first perfume, Miss Dior, was inspired by the lush gardens of his childhood home in Normandy. This was an inextricable link between his fashion and fragrance creations. Similarly, other fragrances were inspired by evenings in the South of France, his old country home and the Chateau de la Colle Noire, where jasmine, tuberose and May roses were grown. Flowers were also central to the designer 's fashion. From the women's flowers that inspired the New Look in the late 1940s, to the dashing ball gowns that followed him into the fashion house. Dior in Bloom contains beautiful photographs of the fashion brand and is perfect for flipping through on a lazy Sunday.
