We are very happy to announce our newest book: GIRL IN DIOR. Creator Annie Goetzinger portrays the origins of the House of Dior and its captivating leader, Christian Dior, all through the eyes of the fictitious Carla, fledgling fashion journalist whose life is about to take an exciting turn. This biography docudrama was originally printed in France to great acclaim and is now being translated to English after much request. See the solicitation in this month’s Diamond Previews magazine for February!
Praise for the French release:
“A portrait full of lightness and class, capable of charming even men, so you can imagine how women will love this.” -Le Figaro

“Sumptuous” -Le Nouvel Observateur
The Girl in Dior is Clara, a freshly hired chronicler, fan of fashion and our guide in the busy corridors of the brand new house of Christian Dior. It’s February 12, 1947 and the crème de la crème of Paris Haute Couture is flocking to the momentous event of Dior’s first show. In a flurry of corolla shaped skirts, the parade of models file down the runway. The audience is mesmerized: it’s a triumph! Carmel Snow of Harper’s Bazaar cries out: “It’s quite a revolution, your dresses have such a new look!“ Dior’s career is launched and Clara’s story begins. Soon, she is picked by Dior himself to be his model…
A biography docudrama marrying fiction and the story of one of the greatest couturier in history, it is also a breathless and stunning presentation of his best designs such as Lauren Bacall wore, rendered by bestselling artist Annie Goetzinger, seen for the first time on this side of the Atlantic.
