The first images from inside the V&A’s Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams exhibition are finally here.
The exhibition is so much more than a few dresses being shoved on display. There will be original pencil sketches, pop-culture nods and garments designed for and worn by worldwide celebrities including Rihanna and Princess Margaret.
The whole exhibition has been curated and designed to create the feeling of glamour and artistry which is essential to Dior’s vision.
“The influence of Christian Dior’s design was all-pervasive and helped o define an era”, said Oriole Cullen, the V&A’s fashion curator. “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.”
Even if you’re not super into fashion, if you are in London between February 2 and July 15, the stunning exhibition is absolutely worth checking out. Tickets will cost £20 ($26).
