Justine Picardie’s two bestselling biographies, Miss Dior: A Wartime Story of Courage and Couture and Coco Chanel: The Legend and the Life, offer uniquely authoritative accounts of two of the most complex and influential women of fashion. Miss Dior leads us deep into the relationship between the visionary designer Christian Dior and his beloved sister Catherine, a wartime heroine, who inspired his most famous perfume and shaped his vision of femininity. And in Coco Chanel, which was recently updated to coincide with the blockbuster V&A Chanel exhibition, Justine explores the dark mysteries hidden beneath the shimmering surface of a fabled fashion icon. This event is a must for anyone interested in fashion or 20th century history.
