This was first written in 1954!! But the advice is still good to know, and practical, even for you younger girls.

Christian Dior's own nice little overview of the elements of New Look fashion Nov. 21 2007
By Joseph A. Admire - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book isn't really very substantial; it's essentially an alphabetic collection of the great couturier Christian Dior's comments on various elements of fashion and style. On these terms, however, and for the reader who isn't approaching the book expecting anything world-shaking, it's a very nice little item and a good snapshot of "New Look" fashion ideas. Lots of great B&W photos and drawings, too! (I think it really deserves 3 1/2 stars but Amazon's star system doesn't allow that kind of fine-tuning, more's the pity.)

The Little Dictionary of Fashion By Christian Dior May 11 2009
By Loves Vintage Style - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
When Dior wrote this wonderful little dictionary many years ago, he wrote it to be "of great practical use to the women of today." In my opinion, his dictionary has transcended its time (1954). It is a fascinating book for all of us who are interested in fashionable clothing and accessories. Dior has a point of view and a philosophy of dress which is timeless, based on the fundamentals of good dressing--simplicity, good taste, and grooming.

Perfect Gift for the Fashionista Feb. 8 2008
By A Ko - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I bought this book as a gift for a relative who is a fashion aficionado and it was perfect! She owns several other fashion dictionaries, but didn't have this one. If you appreciate the history of fashion, you will love this must have for your book collection.

Not a lot of coverage Jan. 30 2008
By Caloucon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a nice little book - not detailed or descriptive enough for someone really interested in fashion. I did enjoy the photographs. If you are looking for more indepth explanation of fashion terms and guidelines, I suggest A Guide to Elegance: For Every Woman Who Wants to Be Well and Properly Dressed on All Occasions. It is organized alphabetically, just like Mr. Dior's book, but has more detailed written descriptions of the items.

Simple rules that never go out of style! Sept. 14 2009
By Frine Hernandez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Very interesting!
It is just what fashion used to be in the 50's.
Good book to learn what used to be fashion in the old times.
The best of it is that it teaches a lot of the rules that will never go out of style, because it teaches how to be elegant.
I also liked the way he approaches how to use colors and their meaning.
A++++++++++++++ book.
