October 20, 2022 at 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

cover of Dior & His Decorators: Victor Grandpierre, Georges Geffroy, and the New Look by Maureen FooterDior and His Decorators is the first book devoted to the two interior designers most closely associated with Christian Dior. Like the luxurious fashions of Dior’s New Look, which debuted in 1947, the interior designs of Victor Grandpierre and Georges Geffroy infused a war-weary world with a sumptuous new aesthetic drawing on the refined traditions of the past. Using vintage photographs, author Maureen Footer recounts the lives and the work of this trio. A book signing will follow.
