The inaugural display of Le Petit Théâtre Dior exhibit in Chengdu, China, earlier this month, paid homage to the Parisian fashion brand Christian Dior’s immensely talented artisans and craftsmen.
The touring exhibit featured some 60 miniature replicas of the French house’s most famous haute couture outfits, hand crafted in the label’s ateliers.
Displayed in 12 installations, the display’s major attractions included a smaller version of the famous 1949’s Miss Dior dress which featured silk fabric made rose, jasmine and lilac blooms, hand cut with a punch tool and embossed with a period tool, fixed around a brass stalk.
The exhibit also showcased a tiny replica of the beautiful floor length Mexique dress from the fall-winter 1951-1952 collection. The gold sequin embroidered beaded tulle gown featured a dark brown velvet ribbon on the bust.
The Dior magazine describes the exhibit by saying, “Even if they were only a third the size of the original model, each miniature dress in the Petit Théâtre Dior is also produced based on a cotton toile in the purest haute couture tradition and necessitates the same precision and rigor as its big sister.”
The exhibit was inspired from the historical Le Petit Théâtre de la Mode exhibit in Paris. Held in March, 1945, the exhibition was a tribute to the French haute couture industry in the post World War era. It exhibited miniature pieces of the creations designed by the greatest couturiers, including Lucien Lelong, of that period.
Le Petit Théâtre Dior will now travel to other countries across the globe.
