“A beautiful work, chic, brilliant and moving.” – Questions de Femmes

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.

“Christian Dior is best known in modern times as a fashion brand, but before that it was a man — and one of France’s foremost cartoonists tells his life story in the graphic novel Girl in Dior.”

•Comics retailer

“This looks so good … Girl In Dior, by French artist Annie Goetzinger, whose stylings I’ve been lost in for the last few hours … is published by NBM in March after much praise following its publication in France. Her art has a wonderfully classical style, cultured, refined, very tight, elegant, gorgeous.”

Publishers Weekly

•Publishing trade magazine

“One of the rare Grandes Dames of comics in France, Goetzinger is well known for her blend of the historical and nostalgic, and a sumptuous Art Nouveau-influenced style … The beautiful, stylish, inspired dresses. Goetzinger’s background in fashion is apparent not only in the flowing lines of the countless outfits and the way they gloriously capture the light, but in the layouts, backgrounds, and characters of the entire comic. This is for fans of beauty and refinement, both in comics and in clothing, an indulgent present for those who love fashion and the female form.”
