Winner of:
YALSA 2016 Great Graphic Novels for Teens

In February of 1947, the crème de la crème of Paris haute couture have flocked to see Christian Dior’s debut fashion show. In a flurry of corolla shaped skirts, the parade of models file down the runway and the mesmerized audience declares the show a triumph. When Clara—a freshly hired chronicler and guide to the busy corridors of the brand-new fashion house—is hand-picked by Dior to be a model, she knows her life will never be the same. A biography docudrama that marries fiction with the story of one of the greatest couturiers in history, this work is a breathless and stunning presentation of Christian Dior’s greatest designs, beautifully rendered by bestselling artist Annie Goetzinger.

About the Author:

Annie Goetzinger is an award-winning author, illustrator, and costume designer.

Review:

“Great gift idea.”  —Elle

"Just like with Dior’s work, the allure of this graphic novel is in the visuals, and Goetzinger draws the reader into the glamorous world of Dior’s Paris with her gentle but intricately detailed linework." —Oliver Sava, A.V. Club "Goetzinger's illustrations are clean and crisp, just like Dior's dresses, and her use of color, such as when a new collection is introduced and needs to be shown as both bold and understated, is masterly. And there’s a lot of tension in the story. After the war, Dior and his clients may have been wealthy, but most French people were still living hand to mouth. In an early scene, Clara is staging a photo shoot at a farmers’ market. When one of the models casually bites into an apple, the poor vendors go nuts because food is still being rationed." —Wally Bubelis, unshelved.com

“A portrait full of lightness and class, capable of charming even men, so you can imagine how women will love this.”  —Le Figaro



Girl in Dior, by Annie Goetzinger, a grande dame of comics in France, will be published in the U.S. by NBM in March. In addition to her work in comics, Ms. Goetzinger has done theater costume design and fashion illustrations for Le Monde. Her book is a biography of Christian Dior couched in a fictional Cinderella story about a fashion reporter plucked to become a model. It includes endnotes drawn from Ms. Goetzinger’s archival research." —Jennifer Maloney, Wall St. Journal

"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." —Publishers Weekly

"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

"A hymn to beauty, and - through Clara's personal story - to optimism and endurance." —Anna Battista, irenebrination.typepad.com

"Writer/artist Annie Goetzinger is one of France’s best-known names, and it’s obvious why. Her art here is skilled and spare, focusing the eye exactly where needed with nary an extra line or cross-hatch. This elegant, airy look is abetted by a color palette almost entirely in pastels. While fashion isn’t to everyone’s taste, Girl in Dior can be." —Andrew A. Smith, Indiana Gazette

"The familiar nipped waists and full skirts of Dior's famous New Look silhouette are rendered in beautiful detail." —Lisa Niven, Vogue UK

"This comic, ultimately, is not about just fashion, but about how fashion and clothing affected and reflected the lives of women as the entire world recovered from great tragedy." —Janelle Asselin, comicsalliance.com  

"A great tale of haute couture and whimsy." —Danielle Crawford, fortheloveoffrock.com
