At Dior and His Decorators, the FHS Atlanta Chapter welcomes author Maureen Footer for a luncheon, presentation, and a signing of her new book, Dior and His Decorators: Victor Grandpierre, George Geffroy, and The New Look.
Thursday | April 11th, 2019
11:30a.m. – 1:30p.m.
Through the collaboration of Christian Dior with two post-war Parisian decorators, Victor Grandpierre and George Geffroy, author and design historian Maureen Footerexamines the connection between fashion and the decorative arts.
Both friends of Dior, Grandpierre and Geffroy forged a new aesthetic for Parisian interiors in parallel with Dior’s New Look. Drawing on the same inspiration and technique as Dior’s clothes, the New Look single-handedly revived Parisian couture, reestablishing Paris as the international authority of taste and style.
Tickets are available both jointly and separately for the luncheon and book singing.
