In addition to breath-taking displays of dresses worn only by the world’s most elite, the exhibit profiles some of Dior’s most prominent directors, like Yves-Saint Laurent, Raf Simmons, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferre, John Galliano, and Maria Grazia Chiuri. These were all people who not only helped Dior during his prime, but helped carry on the legacy once Dior had passed from the scene. As people walk through the exhibit, they can find the history of some of fashion’s biggest powerhouses that continue to influence the world today. The exhibit will take you through time, displaying videos of the design process of the dresses, interviews with the icon, Dior, himself, and even videos of famous models, like Gisele, on the runway wearing Dior. Dior and his team made a revolutionary change to fashion and the industry during a time where self-expression through fashion was lacking. So, whether you are a fashion junkie or not, high-culture Paris has arrived in Denver, giving the public an opportunity to learn about the immense influence that Dior and his designs had on both women and the world.
The exhibit will be on display until March 3, 2019 so, be sure to grab your tickets here: https://tickets.denverartmuseum.org/DateSelection.aspx?item=1944
