Few will quibble about the effect the French fashion house of Dior has had on fashion with the highlight no doubt being Christian Dior’s iconic spring 1947 New Look collection with Dior’s signature ball gowns and evening dresses.
In celebration of the 70th anniversary of the couture house, the House of Dior and the National Gallery of Victoria presents The House of Dior: Seventy Years of Haute Couture. Exclusive to Melbourne, the exhibition will have on display more than 140 garments designed by Christian Dior Couture between 1947 and 2017.
Highly recommend if you have the opportunity to attend this exhibit!
The House of Dior: Seventy Years of Haute Couture, runs from August 27 to November 7, 2017.
