Biography

Born in Paris, Dior was the only child of Raymond Dior, a Communist International sympathizer who embraced radicalism and subversive ideas. He was a proponent of the '200 families' theory in that all the world's problems rest with them. Being an heir to the Dior Frères fertilizer fortune, he married the former Madeleine Leblanc. Raymond was the brother of Christian Dior.

Françoise grew up in France during the Nazi occupation, and a historian has stated "one of [Françoise Dior's] sweetest memories was the compliment of an SS-man, 'What a beautiful little Aryan girl.'"
