Dallas Dior Exhibit


Day Trip to Dallas Dior Exhibit

In 1947, legendary fashion designer Christian Dior made his way to North America to accept a Neiman Marcus Award for Distinguished Service in the Field of Fashion, from the Dallas retail icon Stanley Marcus himself. The “Dior: From Paris to the World,” exhibit at the Dallas Museum of Art’s highlights more than 70 years of the House of Dior’s legacy, a selection of haute couture dresses, photographs, original sketches, runway videos and more. 

Upon entering the exhibit, you will be greeted by the stunning, black silhouettes on display. A silhouette, The New Look, is what landed Dior onto the fashion map, so it’s only fitting to start with what began his fashion empire. The remainder of the exhibit includes the creative directors who have succeeded Mr. Dior at the house including Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons, and Maria Grazia Chiuri. 

Although admission at the Dallas Museum of Art’s is always free, special exhibits such as this require tickets, and Dior has been selling out daily. Don’t miss this chance to see some of the most haute couture clothing, representing the pinnacle craft in fashion.
