Exhibition on Christian Dior's relation with Impressionism

Apr '13
French fashion house Christian Dior has always maintained a strong relationship with various forms of arts and to further reinforce this unbreakable bond an exhibition, paying tribute to the nineteenth century Impressionist art movement and its role in shaping up the luxury label, is going to take place from May 4, 2013, onwards.
 
Scheduled to be held at Musée Christian Dior, Granville France, the event titled ‘Impressions Dior’ would feature a collection of more than seventy Impressionist-inspired dresses and famous artworks by major Impressionists, such as Monet, Degas, Renoir and Berthe Morisot.  
 
Jointly curated by Florence Müller, fashion historian and Brigitte Richart and Christian Dior Museum, the exhibits include a yellow tulle Margot dress designed by John Galliano from the label’s 2005 Haute Couture collection.
 
Named after the 20th century English ballerina Dame Margot Fonteyn de Arias, the multicoloured wool-based outfit features painting like pastoral patterns sewn with raffia embroidery. 
 
The exhibition also displays an embroidered, multi-hued tulle-and-silk bustier evening dress, designed by the brand’s current creative director Raf Simons, from the Dior’s Spring 2013 Haute Couture collection.
 
Additionally, various interpretations of the fashion house’s signature dress New Look, which is inspired from the sensuous shapes of flowers and buds, will also be showcased at the event, which would run till September 22, 2013.
