Dior: From Paris to the World
Fresh off the heels of Dior’s monumental 2020 cruise show in Marrakesh, and the extravagant masked ball hosted by creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri in Venice, Dior has landed in the American South for the opening of Dior: From Paris to the World, at the Dallas Museum of Art.
Since monsieur Christian Dior’s haute couture debut in 1947, which sent shockwaves through the industry with the introduction of the history-making ‘New Look,’ the fashion world has never been the same. From the lavish embroideries, luxurious fabrics and elegant silhouettes favored by the house’s eponymous founder (1947-57), to the daring designs of Marc Bohan (1961-1989), the seductive aesthetic of John Galliano (1997-2011) and the minimalist language favored by Raf Simons (2012-2015), Christian Dior and each of his six successors have triumphed in imbuing their respective aesthetics on the French luxury brand while carrying Dior’s masterful vision into the 21st century.
‘Dior: From Paris to the World’ surveys more than 70 years of the house’s enduring legacy, though a dynamic selection of over 100 haute couture ensembles in addition to accessories, sketches, runway videos, photographs and other archival material. In showcasing pivotal themes engrained in the House of Dior’s rich history, a dialogue emerges between the past, present, and without question, the future of LVMH’s prized luxury brand, one who’s influence on a global scale is as robust and relevant as ever. Running through the summer, this historical exhibition is a fashion lovers dream and should not to be missed!
