Кристиан Диор. Человек-легенда / Christian Dior. The man behind the myth
Документальный фильм (Франция, 2005).
Режиссер: Филипп Ланфранши / Philippe Lanfranchi
Кристиан Диор не только изменил и сделал модной "высокую моду", он противоречил самому образу модельера, принятого в обществе. Этот француз никогда не шел на поводу у своей популярности. Он завоевал мир, благодаря смелому взгляду на женскую элегантность, оставаясь при этом сдержанным и консервативным человеком. Но что повлияло на вкусы Диора? Что вдохновляло его динамичное творчество и принесло потрясающий успех? Детство в Нормандии, вечный образ материнской элегантности, его любовь к цветам искусству и архитектуре? Фильм помогает взглянуть изнутри на тайны человека, ставшего легендой - Великого модельера Кристиана Диора.

Christian Dior and I by Christian Dior
TABLE OF CONTENTS
Alas, the writing of this book has involved me in a completely alien form of expression. I undertook it with many misgivings, and I survey the results without the slightest conceit. Conceit! Some of my readers will smile when they see this and think that since I have written a book concerned entirely with myself and my trade, I cannot convincingly deny ~being conceited. Let me make myself clear. In this book I .shall discuss only subjects which I know at firsthand and can therefore treat with authority. People who are not interested in fashion will not bother to read my book; those who are will find it only natural that I should be the author. I have not voiced my opinion of matters beyond my pen such as abstract art or constitutional reform; to my mind, that would "be real conceit. I am a good deal less confident about my handling of the
problem of the two Christian Diors Christian Dior, the man in the public eye, and Christian Dior, the private individual who seem to get further and further apart. The one who lias the biggest part in this book is the dress designer. Ensconced in a magnificent group of buildings on the avenue Montaigne, he is a compound of people, dresses, hats, furs, stockings, perfumes, publicity notices, press photographs, and, every now and then, a small bloodless revolution made by the scissors rather than the sword whose reverberations extend to all comers of the world. Perhaps I should have concentrated entirely on him, and let nothing of myself come through. But then I would have cheated and deprived my story of all that is personal. For I present a very different sort of picture: I was born at Granville in Normandy on January 21, 1905, to Alexandre Louis Maurice Dior, manufacturer, and Madeleine Martin, housewife. Half -Parisian and half-Norman, I am still much attached to my native Normandy, although I rarely go there now.
I like the simple things of life, such as small intimate gatherings of old friends; I detest the noise and bustle of the world and sudden, violent changes. My fellow ountryman, Gustave Flaubert, defended one of the characters in his novels before a court with the bold words: "I am Madame Bovary." And were Christian Dior, couturier, ever to involve me in a similar situation, I should certainly defend him with my last breath: "I am he!" For whether I like it or not, my inmost hopes and dreams are expressed in his creations.
