About the Book:
Celebrating the reopening of 30 Avenue Montaigne following two years of renovations and the launch of the Galerie Dior, a new space dedicated to Dior's creations, this sophisticated volume published on the occasion of the House's 75th anniversary in 2022 presents the public and secret life of the iconic headquarters.
Located in the heart of Paris's Triangle d'Or, 30 Avenue Montaigne has been linked to the House of Dior's story since 1946. Christian Dior chose this hotel particulier to establish his couture house and present his collections, including the inaugural 1947 fashion show that marked the New Look era's debut.
Since then, Christian Dior and his successors from Yves Saint Laurent to Maria Grazia Chiuri have designed and created all the House's collections here. 30 Avenue Montaigne is where the ateliers are still based, making it a fabled address of Parisian haute couture. With emblematic images, archival documents, and a portfolio of Dior creations featured in the new gallery s collections, readers will discover 30 Avenue Montaigne's spirit throughout the decades while heralding its future.
