Yes, I know it sounds insane to do that! What is the exhibition anyway? Why is everyone being so mad about it?
Okay, The exhibition is The House of Dior: 70 years of Haute Couture.
The Musée des Arts Décoratifs is celebrating 70 years since the House of Dior was created, in an exhibition that will run from 5 July 2017 to 7 January 2018. This lavish and comprehensive exhibition invites visitors on a voyage of discovery through the universe of the House of Dior’s founder and the illustrious couturiers who succeeded him: Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons, and most recently, Maria Grazia Chiuri. The selection of over 300 haute couture gowns designed between 1947 and the present day has a unifying thread of emotions, life stories, affinities, inspirations, creations and legacies. Alongside the dresses is the most wide-ranging display to date of workshop canvases and fashion photographs, as well as hundreds of documents (illustrations, sketches, documentary photographs, letters and notes, and advertising documents) and fashion accessories (hats, jewellery, bags, shoes and perfume bottles). click here to see more
In this exhibition they aren’t only gowns but also really interesting archives about the inspirations, mood boards, sketches, documentary photographs, and even the process.
The most interesting part for me is that actually Christian Dior was also a knowledgeable art lover, a huge amount of his design is inspired by art.
In this section, the design works are curated by colours, and then we can focus more on the texture and structure of the design.
