You Will Be Amazed by Decades of Haute Couture During Dior: From Paris to the World

This Saturday, the Dallas Museum of Art will present Dior: From Paris to the World, an exhibition which surveys more than 70 years of the legacy and global influence of the House of Dior. The DMA is one of only two U.S. venues for this extensive retrospective of the celebrated Haute Couture house. Don’t miss it on August 3rd!

Since his debut collection, art gallerist turned legendary couturier Christian Dior has generated an epic movement in fashion history. With lavish embroidery, luxurious fabrics, and elegant silhouettes, his designs were a revolutionary celebration of modern femininity when they emerged in Paris after World War II. Today, Dior’s global influence is as enduring and iconic as ever.

The exhibition will feature a selection of more than 100 haute couture dresses, as well as accessories, photographs, original sketches, runway videos, and other archival material, and trace the history of the iconic haute couture fashion house. This exhibition profiles both Dior himself and subsequent artistic directors, including Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons, and Maria Grazia Chiuri, who have carried Dior’s vision into the 21st century.

Spanning more than seven decades, this retrospective will offer a new perspective on the fashion house’s legacy following the Paris exhibition at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs. The exhibit will be on display through September 1, 2019.

“Dior: From Paris to the World” requires a $20 ticket for adults Tuesday–Thursday and a $25 ticket Friday–Sunday, with discounts for seniors, students, and military. DMA Members and children 11 and under are free. For more information, visit www.dma.org. Don’t be fashionably late in getting your tickets to this stunning exhibit!
