Entitled Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams, this retrospective celebrates the founding couturier's pioneering spirit, as well as the international success of his fashion house, kept alive after his death in 1957 by the various talented Artistic Directors who have succeeded him. Organised according to eleven different themes, this unique event invites visitors to immerse themselves in the intimate world of Christian Dior, tracing the high points of his life, from his childhood to the creation of his fashion house in 1946. This journey back in time also extends to the displays of icons such as the timeless Bar suit and other legendary looks designed by the visionary aesthete.
