On the occasion of its 70th anniversary, Dior paid tribute to its emblematic figures by dedicating a major exhibition to them, to be presented in the heart of the Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris. Named Christian Dior, Designer of Dreams, the exhibition focused on the designer's influence on his contemporaries, embodied in a sublime series of mythical creations. Every day, the pavement in front of 107 rue de Rivoli was packed with people. Breaking all records, the exhibition attracted more than 708,000 spectators.
Above is a picture of the grand hall, where the magnificent ballgowns were on show. The photo does not give you the full perspective of the size and grandeur of the hall. Here are some beautiful pictures that represent one of the signatures of Christian Dior’s style : the emphasis on the waist and the “new look” wide skirt, with stunning colors and a very feminine shape .
For those who haven't had the chance to discover this grandiose exhibition, the house of Dior has posted a free, one-hour video on its YouTube channel that takes us behind the scenes of the Museum of Decorative Arts exhibition.
