Girl in Dior
Annie Goetzinger presents her latest graphic novel, Girl in Dior (Jeune fille en Dior), a sweepingly beautiful docudrama of the life of Christian Dior, starting with the launch of his brand. The Girl in Dior is Clara, a freshly hired journalist, fashionista and future Christian Dior model, who serves as the reader’s guide through the busy hallways of Dior. Goetzinger’s illustrations bring back to life the genius of Christian Dior and his emotionally challenging destiny, the New Look revolution, the fevrish studious hours spent in his workstudio on rue Montaigne, the shows… Jeune fille en Dior is a real documentary on the backstages of the fashion industry, an exploration at the heart of splendid fabrics, magnificent dress, and dreamlike silhouettes.
In English. Free and open to the public. No RSVP Necessary.
