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 the 12th of February 1947, and the creme de la creme 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 mesmerised: it's a triumph! Soon, Clara is picked by Dior himself to be his model.
"In sweeping tableaux and panels, she deftly captures the movement and drape of fabric with a line that's a more sensual take on the traditional Franco-Belgian comics style of her contemporaries . . . In any language, it make readers nostalgic for the elegance and artistry of a bygone fashion scene." --Nathalie Atkinson, the "Globe and Mail"
