Lady Dior As Seen By



The traveling exhibition Lady Dior As Seen By will arrive in Berlin from June 12th to 27th, 2021*.
After Shanghai, Düsseldorf, Milan, Tokyo and Sao Paulo, this event celebrating the iconic Lady
Dior as revisited by contemporary artists will take place in the heart of the German capital.

A symbol and a legend, the Lady Dior is a constant source of reinvention. Since first appearing
on the arm of Lady Diana, the bag has enjoyed an extraordinary destiny. The quintessence of
the Dior spirit, its codes – from its architectural lines to its lucky charms – reflect its haute couture
savoir-faire. An artisanal treasure conceived, sewn and stitched to reveal its beauty and
heritage, the Lady Dior continues to transcend fashion with the most audacious twists.

This new edition of Lady Dior As Seen By gathers emblematic works notably signed by Olympia
Scarry, Seon-Ghi Bahk and Peter Lindbergh alongside new reinterpretations by artists from the
Berlin art scene, such as Debora Mittelstaedt, Michael Sailstorfer and Tomislav Topic. For this
special occasion, these talents have risen to the challenge of transforming this essential bag,
metamorphosing it through the prism of their imagination. From sculptures to photographs,
more than seventy enchanting works may be discovered at the Michael Fuchs Gallery, a vibrant
epicenter of contemporary creation.

Combining past, present and future, this exceptional alliance pays tribute to Christian Dior’s
passion for the arts, with this inspiring event, a virtuoso tribute to freedom and excellence,
highlighting more than ever the creative dialogues perpetuated by the House.

*The event will take place in compliance with current sanitary measures.
