Girl in Dior brings classic fashion to life
In February of 1947, the crème de la crème of Paris haute couture have flocked to see Christian Dior's debut fashion show. In a flurry of corolla shaped skirts, the parade of models file down the runway and the mesmerized audience declares the show a triumph. When Clara—a freshly hired chronicler and guide to the busy corridors of the brand-new fashion house—is hand-picked by Dior to be a model, she knows her life will never be the same. A biography docudrama that marries fiction with the story of one of the greatest couturiers in history, this work is a breathless and stunning presentation of Christian Dior's greatest designs, beautifully rendered by bestselling artist Annie Goetzinger.
One of the Grandes Dames of comics in France, Annie Goetzinger has had a distinguished and award winning career not only in comics but also in theater costume design and illustration, most notably for the newspaper Le Monde.
Girl in Dior is published by NBM Publishing and distributed by IPG.
Praise for Girl in Dior
"This is for fans of beauty and refinement, both in comics and in clothing, an indulgent present for those who love fashion and the female form." —Publishers Weekly
"Girl in Dior, by Annie Goetzinger, a grande dame of comics in France, will be published in the U.S. by NBM in March. In addition to her work in comics, Ms. Goetzinger has done theater costume design and fashion illustrations for Le Monde. Her book is a biography of Christian Dior couched in a fictional Cinderella story about a fashion reporter plucked to become a model. It includes endnotes drawn from Ms. Goetzinger's archival research." —Jennifer Maloney, Wall St. Journal
"In sweeping tableaux and panels, she deftly captures the movement and drape of fabric with a line that's a more sensual take on the traditional Franco-Belgian comics style of her contemporaries . . . In any language, it make readers nostalgic for the elegance and artistry of a bygone fashion scene." —Nathalie Atkinson, the Globe and Mail
