Dior Fashion Exhibition - Designer of Dreams at the V&A

The exhibition opens Saturday, February 2nd and is on until July.

This is for those who do not plan to come to London for the show.

For better pictures, please do try going on relevant hashtags on IG and of course the link I have on the first sentence on this post.

 The exhibition was in a new section of the museum and 
it was the first time I saw any exhibition there.
 I never ever get sick of the Dior silhouette.






 This is a famous dress but it was only in the exhibit that 
I learned that the embroidery was straw!






 Galliano is lauded but apart from his sculptural quality, 
I just can't see how his designs were flattering with the exception of one outfit coming up below.


 I call these three dress the Dictators' wives section.
 Love the red outfit.

 This room had some of my favourite dresses but also the room was decorated with paper cut wisteria and other flowers.
 These pics do not do this feather dress any justice.


These three dresses were my favourite of the exhibit.



The left on is the iconic lily of the valley dress and the right ensemble is the only piece by Galliano I love. The sculpted jacket and the purple dress makes up for the other pieces by him I don't really enjoy.











I loved March Bohan but I also was partial to Raf Simons and 
this red coat demonstrates why.








These pics are just an extra dimension for those who can't make it to London but if you are interested in fashion or a fashion student, 
I would high recommend a visit!

  1. All they really need is Melania in that red Dior suit and updo she wore in Paris...nothing I've seen in years can touch it.

    1. Melania seems to becoming a bit of a fatty boomboom but, her spouse is officially obese

  2. Gorgeous! We had a tiny Dior show at our local museum but nothing like this. London is on my list to visit this year. This show might be the reason to make that happen sooner!
