Photos are an important part of the history of Dior: their iconic images have helped to build the brand’s empire. Many of these portraits have been brought together in
the exhibition ''Dior: The Legendary Images, Great Photographers and Dior,'' on display at the Dior Museum in Granville, Normandy.
Images by Richard Avedon, Patrick Demarchelier, Cecil Beaton, Irving Penn, Helmut Newton and Peter Lindbergh have been divided into three themes: the eye of the photographer, portraits of Dior style and the construction of the Dior picture.
The collection consists of about 200 photographs, which show about 60 of the brand’s dresses, and documents illustrating the collaboration between designers and the maison.
To commemorate the occasion, the brand has published the book “Dior, Images de Légende'', which includes a photograph taken by the American photographer Pat English that helped catapult the New Look into the public consciousness.
A must have for fans of the French fashion house and fashion photography.
