Reflecting the fact that Christian Dior was also a knowledgeable art lover who adored museums, designs from over 70 years interact with a selection of paintings, furniture, and objets d'art. These works highlight and develop Christian Dior's outlook by exploring the ties he forged between couture and all forms of art, defining the House of Dior's enduring influence. The two curators, Florence Müller and Olivier Gabet, convey their message with a chronological and themed exhibition design that inhabits and brings together the museum's fashion areas and the nave for the first time, a space of almost 3,000 square metres.
