Visitors will be able to view more than 250 haute couture dresses, illustrations by René Gruau or Christian Bérard, and works by prestigious Chinese artists in a celebration of the steadfast bonds that have united Dior and China since 1947. Curated by Oriole Cullen (Curator of Modern Textiles and Fashion at the Victoria & Albert Museum), this homage to heritage and creative passion is an invitation on a journey to the heart of Christian Dior’s visionary audacity and that of his successors, from Yves Saint Laurent to Maria Grazia Chiuri today.
