Christian Dior 'Couturier du Rêve'

Christian Dior 'Couturier du Rêve'

The Christian Dior exhibition, currently showing in Paris is spectacular. Spell bindingly beautiful. It celebrates 70 years of the great couturier and his infinite body of work, from the very beginnings with designs by himself right up to the current designs by Maria Grazia Chiuri.

 

It is an abundant exhibition, with over 300 haute couture dresses on show, and the defining ‘New Look’ of 1947. Detailed and bijou in parts, so wildly extravagant in others. There is much to see, from the beautifully colour coded display of bags, shoes, hats and miniature recreations of statement ball gowns, to the Monet-inspired garden collection, through to the mesmerising and dazzling ‘Ball Gown Ballroom’.

 

It is a feast for the senses and a beautiful celebration of creativity and technical expertise. It celebrates not only the man who made Paris a fashion capital but also those designers that maintained the genius of the house, Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferre, John Galliano, Raf Simons and recently Maria Grazia Chiuri.

 

What you see here is only a small selection of what is to be discovered. Don’t miss it, it is truly wonderful.
