The Victoria & Albert museum is already announcing its upcoming exhibition about the renowned French couturier, exploring the enduring influence of the fashion house, and Dior's relationship with Britain. Tickets will go on sale in a couple of days for 'Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams' opening up in February, 2nd 2019.
Considering Frida Khalo's exhibition was sold out in just a few weeks, if you really want to see this one, try to secure your tickets in advance, I would highly recommend attending the Curator talks, just before the opening, or the weekend course on 'Dior: Top to Toe'.
Bear in mind exhibition related events tend to be quite popular so if you leave it too late you may be disappointed. No, this is not a promotional feature, but just a sad aspect of modern life, when spontaneity is becoming increasingly difficult.
Even our social life is all about scheduling; calling up a friend to go for a drink on the spot just doesn't work anymore. And to take a closer look at the man who has created such an iconic brand is really exciting for those of us who love fashion.
The time of couturiers seems magical and there's certainly a lot to learn from it, especially from someone as outstanding as Christian Dior. The fashion house is now creatively led by Maria Grazia Chiuri.
After leaving Valentino, she is seducing the press and social media influencers with her bold attitude and creative lightness. The last show was quite impressive with dancers performing on the catwalk in a way that complemented the collection.
