You can now view the Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams exhibition from the comfort of your own home
Walk through 70 years of fashion
Fashion has always acted as a form of escapism. And during these trying COVID-19 times with up-to-date news reports bombarding our phones and weeks of self-isolation with no end in sight, a fantastical respite from the mundane might just be what some of us need. If you've already exhausted all of your *insert streaming platform of your choice* show options, binged watched Tiger King in a sitting (come on, we totally know you did), and have no idea what else to do with your life, then you might want to add Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams next on your list of things to watch.
Originally held at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris followed by the sold out viewings at the V&A in London, the exhibition spans through 70 years of fashion history from the house of Dior, showcasing the evolution of the French fashion house from its advent in post-war Paris — where Christian Dior himself ushered in the 'New Look' era — to present day creative directors who have continued to carry out his legacy. It is not only a must-watch for the fashion lovers, but rather anyone looking for some much needed cultural relief.
And even if you were lucky enough to have seen the original exhibition in real life, the documentary gives us an all access look into the making of the exhibition and provides a guided walk through with Designer of Dreams' curators Florence Müller and Olivier Gabet.
And if you haven't, well there's no time like the present. Take a virtual tour of the exhibition below.
