Women in Dior – Sublime Elegance of a Portrait

As part of the Normandy Impressionist festival, the Christian Dior Museum’s exhibition invites visitors to discover this great designer’s work and inspiration through the women who have chosen and worn the creations of his fashion house. After the designer’s sketches, the workshop realization and the presentation on the catwalk, customers give new life to the creations, adapting them to their personalities and the world in which they live. Worn by the customer, the dress takes on her identity, her unique personality and her history. The exhibition evokes these moments in the lives of women, made resplendent by the designer creations.
