She was known as Miss Dior and her brother, with whom she shared a fusional relationship, dedicated his first perfume to her. Miss Dior... Behind this nickname, which has become iconic, hides a discreet muse, a brave heroine in the shadows: Catherine Dior, the youngest sister of Monsieur Dior, who, just like him, was an unconditional enthusiast for nature and flowers. Now, for the first time, a book* has been dedicated to her subject. Through this new investigation, author Justine Picardie paints the portrait of a politically engaged and fascinating woman, a figure of the Resistance with exceptional courage. Like precious tributes to her, Christian Dior imagined virtuoso haute couture creations, such as the breathtaking Miss Dior dress first created in 1949 and constantly reinterpreted over the seasons. This intimate, emotional story highlights a unique life force that inspires the House of Dior more than ever.
