The Musée des Arts Décoratifs celebrated 70 years since the House of Dior was created, in an exhibition that gathered more than 700 000 visitors from all over the world.
Through this lavish and comprehensive exhibition we will embark on a voyage of discovery through the universe of the House of Dior's founder and the illustrious couturiers who succeeded him: Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons, and most recently, Maria Grazia Chiuri. The selection of over 300 haute couture gowns designed between 1947 and the present day has a unifying thread of emotions, life stories, affinities, inspirations, creations and legacies. Alongside the dresses is the most wide-ranging display to date of workshop canvases and fashion photographs, as well as hundreds of documents (illustrations, sketches, documentary photographs, letters and notes, and advertising documents) and fashion accessories (hats, jewellery, bags, shoes and perfume bottles). A voyage from the beginnings of the project and the choice of the masterpieces to the successful inauguration in Paris that welcomed guest stars such as Natalie Portman, Céline Dion or Robert Pattinson.
