Christian Dior: Designer of DreamsThe largest and most comprehensive exhibition ever staged in the UK on the House of Dior, Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams displays over 500 objects and 200 rare Haute Couture garments. It's the biggest fashion exhibition staged at the Victoria and Albert Museum since Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty in 2015. Haute couture gowns, accessories, fashion photography, film, perfume, make-up, illustrations and magazines will be shown alongside Christian Dior's personal possessions to explore the legacy of the couturier. Spanning from 1947 to the present day, the exhibition traces the history and impact of one of the 20th century's most influential designers, and the six artistic directors who have succeeded him. Based on the major exhibition Christian Dior: Couturier du Reve, organised by the Musee des Arts Decoratifs in Paris, the exhibition has been reimagined for the V&A, and includes a brand new section exploring the designer's influence in Britain.
