The Museum of Decorative Arts invites you to discover a major exhibition, in tribute to Christian Dior, his career and above all, his works inspiring the world of haute couture for decades now.
The couturier’s childhood will influence his creations and those of all his successors throughout history.
The most beautiful creations of Dior will be exhibited in the museum from now on.
It is a magnificent way to pay tribute to the emblematic figures of the house (such as Yves Saint Laurent and Galliano) and to allow all audiences to approach and admire their masterpieces.
Sewing is an art in its own right! We talk about a huge retrospective of Dior since 1947. The house of haute couture will present more than 400 models of dresses.
These are mythical creations and contemporary style which have for ideology, to embellish the woman, to highlight its body and to sublimate its curves.
Through his art, he wants to break the image of women in the 1950s which is “too wise”. He likes to work on forms, patterns, and extravagance by especially supporting his work on women’s shape.
“It is the spots of colors that will animate the streets tomorrow,” he writes in his autobiogaphy.
In his sewing workshop, Christian Dior sacralizes the woman’s body and demolishes the square build.
In this way he revolutionized post-war fashion forever.
