A record-breaking exhibition
Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons, Maria Grazia Chiuri. What have they got in widespread? Dior. These seven designers have all been, for a big interval of time, artistic administrators of the Parisian vogue home, based in 1947 by Christian Dior. On the event of its 70th anniversary, Dior paid tribute to its emblematic figures by dedicating a significant exhibition to them, to be offered in 2017 in the coronary heart of the Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris. Named Christian Dior, Designer of Dreams, the exhibition centered on the designer’s affect on his contemporaries, embodied in a elegant sequence of legendary creations imagined by the gifted artistic administrators who’ve been at the helm of the French home for greater than 70 years. An exhibition that triggered a veritable Diormania in the capital, from July 2017 to January 2018. Every day, the pavement in entrance of 107 rue de Rivoli was full of individuals. Breaking all information, the exhibition attracted greater than 708,000 spectators. A hit that drew audiences from throughout the Channel, since in February 2019, the exhibition was revived at the V&A Museum in London, the largest exhibition ever dedicated to the home of Dior in Great Britain. Even bigger, much more in depth, enriched by a brand new thematic area devoted to Christian Dior‘s fascination with British tradition, the London exhibition was much more stunning than the one in Paris. The exhibition was meant to journey the world too, since the Denver Museum hosted Dior: From Paris to the World, which confirmed 150 of the Parisian vogue home’s flagship creations in a panoramic scenography.
A digital go to on YouTube
For those that have not had the likelihood to find this grandiose exhibition, the home 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. Magnificent, to say the least.
