Dior and His Decorators

Design historian Maureen Footer and fashion expert, TV producer, and award-winning author Marie-France Pochna will be discussing Footer’s latest book, Dior and His Decorators: Victor Grandpierre, Georges Geffroy, and the New Look (Vendome Press), the first in-depth account of the two Parisian interior designers associated with Christian Dior.

Eloquently written and beautifully illustrated, it recounts the evolution of Dior’s aesthetic as a fashion revolutionary and an aficionado of interior design via his personal residences, his couture house, and the Dior brand. Simultaneously, the story examines the intimate connection of couture and interiors, chronicling the glamorous new style of interior design that emerged in Paris in parallel with the New Look.
