    CHRISTION DIOR EXHIBITION AT V AND A IN 2019

    Sunday, July 29th, 2018

    A sketch by Christian Dior for model Oxford, Spring/Summer 1947 collection.

    Excitement is building already about the largest and most comprehensive exhibition ever to be staged in the UK on the House of Dior.  Spanning the years from 1947 to the present day it opens at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London next February.

    Christian Dior:  Designer of Dreams will trace the history and impact of one of the most influential couturiers of the 20th century and the six artistic directors who succeeded him.  The show will present more than 500 objects and over 200 rare haute couture garments.

    In 1947 Dior changed the face of fashion with his New Look which redefined the female silhouette and re-invigorated the post war Parisian fashion industry.
