Dallas might not be known as the fashion capital of the world, but it's at the Dallas Museum of Art that an official Dior exhibit just opened up. The Dior exhibit is built like a literal cathedral for the famous works of legendary designer Christian Dior. The exhibit shows everything from actual outfits to sketches and much more. Any lover of fashion needs to check out these incredible works of art.
"Dior: From Paris to the World" showcases over 70 years of work from the House of Dior's Legacy. Visitors of the museum will be able to enjoy seeing over 100 haute couture dresses that showcase luxurious fabrics and detailed embroidery. As you walk through, you will also be able to see runway videos from their most famous and successful seasons.
To add to the amazement, the DMA has added work for their own collection to the exhibit which shows where possible inspiration for these dresses might have come from. Though the main attraction is Christian Dior's work, there will also be work by Yves Saint Laurent and current art director Maria Grazia Chiuri. With shoes, dresses and tons of accessories on display, the DMA has decided to show the documentary "Dior and I" on July 19. The documentary follows art director Raf Simons on the road to presenting his first collection at the House.
The exhibit centers around how Dior created his own version of femininity in the post-war era. Unlike other exhibits at the DMA, you are required to sign up for a time slot before going to the museum. Time slots depend on the day as some have more availability than others. Tickets for the exhibit start at just $20.
The Dallas Musem of Art is located at 1717 N Harwood St. "Dior: From Paris to the World" will be at the DMA until September 1st of this year, so you better come visit during the summer before it's gone. For tickets and more information, you can visit their website here.
