Fashionistas, history buffs and anyone with an eye for detail: this one’s for you.
Christian Dior’s “New Look” ushered in a new era of fashion. The flowing skirts, rounded hips and soft shoulders relegated the boxy wartime silhouette into the history books. Now, you can see these revolutionary creations up close at the ROM’s Christian Dior exhibit, opening November 25th.
In celebration of the House of Dior’s 70th anniversary, this exhibition focuses on the period from 1947 to 1957 and offers “a captivating insight into the creative process and the mechanics of the Paris haute couture industry during the 1950s.” Revel in the masterful cuts, luxury textiles, craftsmanship and detail by one of fashion’s greatest icons, and see for yourself why this era was known as the Golden Age of dressmaking.
If you’re curious to see how an exhibit of this magnitude is put together, keep your eyes on our Insta tomorrow.
