Dior exhibition (Jul. 5 - Jan. 7) arts decoratifs dÃ©coratifs exhibition decorative
In a few wordsThe MusÃ©e des Arts DÃ©coratifs is celebrating the 70th anniversary of the creation of the House of Dior 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 Diorâ€™s founder and the illustrious couturiers who succeeded him: Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco FerrÃ©, John Galliano, Raf Simons and, most recently, Maria Grazia Chiuri.
In detailThe 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 atelier toiles and fashion photographs, as well as hundreds of documents, including illustrations, sketches, documentary photographs, letters and notes and advertising documents, and fashion accessories, including hats, jewellery, bags, shoes and perfume bottles.
Reflecting the fact that Christian Dior was also a knowledgeable art lover who adored museums, designs from over 70 years interact with a selection of paintings, furniture and objets dâ€™art. These works highlight and develop Christian Diorâ€™s outlook by exploring the ties he forged between couture and all forms of art, defining the House of Diorâ€™s enduring influence.
The two curators, Florence MÃ¼ller and Olivier Gabet, convey their message with a chronological and themed exhibition design that inhabits and brings together the museumâ€™s fashion areas and the nave for the first time, a space of almost 3,000 square meters.
Good to know
Value for money
French haute couture is definitely the best. Thank you Monsieur Dior!
We were inside after 5 minutes of security checks, so my advice is definitly to pre-book! I was dragged there by my girlfriend but I honestly loved it.
The exhibition is just beautiful and amazing. But it was too hot inside the museum.
