Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Classic features of Dior Couture, For more forward thinking design maybe Dior New Couture better I loved the idea of this book but it felt very one note and more classic in a sense. It is a great catalogue of interesting gowns/evening wear and fabric manipulation for that purpose but it didn't feel forward thinking enough - perhaps the book I need to look at is Dior New Couture. There is very little diversity in the models as well. If you like the classic Dior world you will like this book. I can't say I would or would not recommend this book to a friend - depends on the friend.
