Dior retrospective

At the Musée des arts décoratifs in Paris until the 7th of January 2018, a retrospective pays tribute to over 70 years of haute couture of La Maison Christian Dior.

Passionate about art, Chirtian Dior owns an art galley and wants to give hope for a better life after the war. His new mission is to imagine sumptuous dresses and interrupt the masculine trend going on at the time. He wants women to feel feminine again. His love for paintings and many references to art can be found in his creations. The use of patterns, cuts, large folds of fabric, pearls, embroidery participated to the influence of French way of life abroad.
