Christian Dior

February 3, 2019

June 2, 2019

Regular Admission

Glenbow Museum, 130 9th Avenue Southeast, Calgary


Events Description

Drawn largely from the extensive fashion and textile collection of the Royal Ontario Museum, the exhibition includes exquisite gowns and smart daytime apparel, perfumes and accessories – all from the first ten years of the House of Dior (1947 – 1957), when Christian Dior himself designed the pieces.

It explores the construction of Dior’s designs to understand how the House reinvented modern dressmaking by reviving forgotten historical skills and fusing them with unprecedented designs, cuts, and materials.

It highlights the artisans, designers and manufacturers who pioneered new luxury products and the business models that help explain how, in ten short years and only 22 collections, Christian Dior accounted for over five percent of all French exports and created a new ideal of femininity that appealed to fashionable women around the world.
