Bonjour! Last September, three days after I thought Boyd had croaked on me in our Paris Hotel, I felt like Larry Daley (aka. Ben Stiller) in the movie a Night at the Museum. I was one of 10 people in the entire Christian Dior Museum!!! I’m madly in love with Christian Dior’s creative fashions, perfume bottles, and the brand itself! Come with me to tour the amazing collection of the most prized possessions of the Christian Dior brand.

Watch this video to see all of my favorite couture, shoes, and perfumes…

Marking the 70th anniversary of the creation of the Christian Dior house, the exhibition ran until January 2018. Rich and full of detail, I discovered a world of couture like no other. Christian Dior and the founders and renowned couturiers who have succeeded him such as Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferre, John Galliano, Raf Simons and recently Maria Grazia Chiuri are more than fashion. They are cultural artisans who have inspired so many pieces of my own art and fashion that I didn’t even realize until seeing this exhibition.

The entry to the Christian Dior museum was spectacular…the building’s architecture spoke volume.

The emotions and stories come to life as the selection of more than 300 couture dresses designed from 1947 to the present day are captured in film, video, and in real life. This is an example of how they exhibited a dress with advertisements and movies that the couture was once worn in.

The front covers of the magazines that embraced Christian Dior seemed miles long.

And the furs are statement pieces of wearable art. I love this fur of the Arch de Triomphe located at the end of Paris’s most notable street, the Champs de Elysee.

Christi Tasker
Christi Tasker For more than 10 years, Christi Tasker was a nationally acclaimed award-winning retailer and interior designer. While she treasured and nurtured her gift boutique and interior design company, she ultimately discovered her true passion – MARKETING and BRANDING! With an eye for detail that only comes from a skilled and experienced designer, Christi learned the secrets to creating a clear, concise brand – one both unmistakable and unforgettable − that would stand out from the crowd. The interest in marketing and branding for businesses actually had its beginning in her family. As did many devoted moms, Christi shadowed her then eleven-year-old daughter, Macy, whenever she ventured online. On one particular day, Christi had an epiphany as she watched Macy scour MySpace for any news in the virtual world of “Webkinz.” Christi placed an order for those lovable furry friends, with their special codes for use with online games, and when they arrived, she shared the news on MySpace, not knowing at the time that she had crafted her first social media campaign. When the college gates went down on Facebook, Christi immediately became one of the first non-college friends of Facebook. And more than just a casual user, she quickly discovered a side of Facebook that only programmers knew about – The Facebook Developer − full of options and tools to help companies better use the web. Christi quickly recognized that marketers either needed to be formally educated about social media or needed a partner to manage their sites. She launched a social media marketing company, which today provides social media branding, strategy, monitoring and training worldwide. Before long, she realized her ability to keep up with her many social media accounts was hampered by the lack of a suitable tool to keep everything in one place. Christi decided the best way to do a job properly was to “do it yourself” and developed PuTTin’ OuT (Socially Accepted) a set of tools to moderate, manage, create, schedule, and publish content, and automatically engage people, all in a single package. In early 2009, Christi began traveling nationally as a social media expert speaker for various brands and businesses, and today is a sought-after social media keynote speaker at the foremost conferences worldwide. she also appears on NBC as a social media advisor/expert.
