Exhibition Visit: Christian Dior, Designer of Dreams
Victoria & Albert Museum, London
Now until 1st September, 2019
Lovers of hats, sparkles and glamour rejoice! Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams exhibition has landed at the V&A. After missing out on the Dior exhibition last year at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris I had a bad case of FOMO, and not only booked tickets to the exhibition but became a member as well. A member! Oh dear.
First stop was the members bar for a pre-exhibition coffee.
Swanky, eh? Noted to self to come back in the evening sometime for cocktails.
Right, it's time for the show!
The exhibition covers everything you would expect from the New Look era, and to my delight has plenty of modern pieces from creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri.
And if you are a fan of Stephen Jones then ding ding ding - you have hit the hat jackpot. The exhibition itself has hundreds of hats on display, but our buddy Stephen, with his 20+ year partnership with Dior has crafted over half of them.
Dreamy, right? This room was organised by colour and had me in full swoon. I've never seen a more glamorous rainbow.
And hats! The hats!
Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams is now sold out, but a limited amount of tickets are being sold on the day on a first come first served basis. Alternatively you can be naughty like me and get a membership which entitles you unlimited entry to the exhibition for the duration of its run.
If anyone needs me I will be in the rainbow room.
