Christian Dior: Designer of dreams
The V&A exhibition celebrating the life and work of the fashion designer Christian Dior will be the largest retrospective on the French fashion house ever staged in the UK.
Spanning 1947 to the present day, this exhibition will trace the history and impact of one of the 20th century’s most influential couturiers, exploring the enduring influence of the fashion house, and Dior’s relationship with Britain. It will be the largest and most comprehensive Dior exhibition ever staged in the UK.
“Christian Dior’s masterful artistry and craftsmanship created a high fashion legacy that has endured now for over seven decades,” said V&A Director Tristram Hunt at a press briefing on Tuesday. “This exhibition will be a defining moment for fashion at the Victoria and Albert museum.”
