Christian Dior’s Designer of Dreams exhibition comes to London


Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams exhibition will soon be shown for the first time in London.

Based on 2017’s exhibition Christian Dior: Couturier du Reve, organized by the Musee des Arts Decoratifs, Paris, it will be staged at the Victoria and Albert Museum and will be the largest fashion exhibition in the UK since “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty in 2015.”.

The exhibition is dedicated to the legendary designs of the fashion house and will highlight the iconic designer’s history and influence on fashion from 1947 to today. Over 300 couture dresses, made between 1947 and 2017, studio tools and fashion photographs will be included. Hundreds of documents and fashion accessories including hats, jewelry, bags, shoes and perfume bottles will also be on display.

‘The V&A recognized Dior’s important contribution to design history early on in his career, acquiring his sketches and garments from the 1950s onwards,’ Oriole Cullen curator, said in a press release. ‘In their own individual ways, each of the house’s successive artistic directors have referenced and reinterpreted Dior’s own designs and continued the legacy of the founder, ensuring that the house of Christian Dior is at the forefront of fashion today. More than 70 years after its founding, the V&A’s exhibition will celebrate the enduring influence of the house of Dior and uncover Dior’s relationship with Britain.’

The Christian Dior Designer of Dreams exhibition will run from February 2, 2019 to July 14, 2019.
