Christian Dior – Designer of Dreams
From the 5th of July 2017 the Musée des Arts Décoratifs (Paris, France) is hosting a unique retrospective exhibition dedicated to the 70’s anniversary of the House of Dior.
The exhibition reveals not only the ten years of Christian Dior’s creative activities but also the creations of six artistic directors that followed Dior: Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons and Maria Grazia Chiuri.
The exhibition presents around fifteen models by each of Dior’s six successors in a series of six galleries organized in chronological and thematic order.
The aim is to show a heritage and reveal the richness of Dior’s creative universe. Alongside the three hundred dresses, the exhibition gathered together also numerous documents (sketches, photographs, manuscripts and advertisements) and objects (hats, jewellery, shoes, perfumes), as well as sets of paintings and pieces of furniture from the eighteenth century to Art Nouveau and Surrealism.
The exhibition includes also the miniature version of iconic Dior gowns created by the House of Dior in 2013.
