After being held at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the spectacular retrospective exhibition Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams is now in Shanghai’s Long Museum West Bound, where visitors can visit it until October 4th. From the most recent designs by Maria Grazia Chiuri, underlined by her feminist and political approach, to the heavily dramatic, artistic and opulent designs by John Galliano or the more conceptual, sober collections by Raf Simons, the exhibition traces a legendary legacy of one of the most emblematic fashion houses in the world.

Curated by Oriole Cullen, Curator of Modern Textiles and Fashion at the V&A, the third take of the exhibition comes to life anew in China with a fresh scenographic narrative featuring many exceptional pieces, including more than 250 haute couture dresses, sketches, archival documents, photographs, and even emblematic perfumes such as Miss Dior and J’adore, as well as illustrations by René Gruau or Christian Bérard, and works by Chinese artists celebrating the bonds that have united the country and the Maison of Dior since 1947.

The impressive show is “an homage to heritage and creative passion”, and it’s thought as “an invitation on a journey to the heart of Christian Dior’s visionary audacity and that of his successors, from Yves Saint Laurent to Maria Grazia Chiuri today.” Starting with the revolutionary New Look that put Monsieur Dior’s name on everyone’s lips, and continuing with the more than seventy years of collections – from ready-to-wear to haute couture –, the exhibition is unmissable for anyone appreciating artistry, fashion and the ultimate craftsmanship.
The exhibition Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams is on view until October 4 at Long Museum West Bound, 3398 Longteng Ave, Xuhui District, Shanghai.
