Open for public viewing from July 5, Christian Dior – 'Couturier du Rêve' at Musée des Arts Décoratifs, celebrating the house's 70th anniversary — is perhaps the biggest fashion retrospective of the year!
Florence Müller, co-curator of the exhibit explains, “The goal of the exhibition is to show the source of creation and the breadth of culture that Christian Dior and the designers who succeeded him possessed. They really explored the history of art. It’s important for the public to understand that fashion isn’t ‘easy.’ Dior, and the others, made a point of bathing in culture. He understood the complexity of things, but what he loved was simplicity.” 🌹
