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.

All sorted by color, there were walls and showcases full of detailed hats, shoes, dresses, and coordinating perfume bottles and handbags.

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.

If only my closet looked like this Spring Dreamland.

Do you have fond memories of anything Christian Dior? If so, please share your stories or piece below.
