The Little Dictionary of Fashion by Christian Dior

A guide to dress sense for every woman

Written in 1954 this guide on how to dress with style and elegance is still an imperative book in any fashion buff’s coffee table! Like insider trading, Monsieur Christian Dior grants us with word-of-the-wise tips on everything, from how to walk with grace, to perfectly tying a scarf and so much more. Alphabetically he knocks us off our high heels and reminds us that Elegance should never be underestimated! Beginning with “Accent” – that little personal touch which makes a dress your own dress – and ending with “Zest” – that is the secret of beauty and fashion, too!

Elegance: This is a word that would need a book to give it is right definition! I will only say now that elegance must be the right combination of distinction, naturalness, care, and simplicity. Outside this, believe me, there is no elegance. Only pretension.” – C.D.
