Une Maison, Des Collections at Christian Dior Museum

Une maison, des collections looks at Christian Dior’s sources of inspiration and his creations. Stepping inside 30 Avenue Montaigne in Paris, we are invited to discover the expertise of the Dior fashion house, and to get a behind-the-scenes look at jewellery design, the sewing studios and scarf creation.In this period, a woman’s elegance was manifested through her careful adaptation of her outfit to each moment in the day.

Christian Dior fully understood this, and from 1947 he offered collections allowing women to change clothes up to five times a day. Part of the exhibition shows this diversity through a selection of emblematic pieces. This year, winter is well and truly here, with a display of coats, furs and New Year’s Eve dresses, allowing visitors to see a different side of the fashion house’s creations.

The exhibition also immerses us in the great clothing designer’s professional life, presenting his most faithful employees, such as the famous illustrator René Gruau or the shoe designer Roger Vivier. For the first time, it offers us the chance to discover the world of Baby Dior. Through all of this, visitors can glimpse the spirit of the Haute Couture creations introduced by Christian Dior and continued by his successors, from Yves Saint Laurent to Maria Grazia Chiuri, the new artistic director. A selection of sixty Haute Couture and Ready-to-Wear pieces, as well as fashion accessories, are exhibited. Loan items from Christian Dior Couture enrich the display, in this house where Christian Dior took his first steps.

 

Christian Dior Museum, Granville
From November 11, 2016 to March 5, 2017
