My favourite designer of all time and one of my biggest inspirations, due to the way he changed fashion after World War II. When I saw this exhibition advertised on Instagram I knew I had to go and see it at Les Arts Décoratifs , even though it was in Paris. It was 100% worth the trip and was by far the best exhibition I have ever been to. As you go around there is so much to look at from artwork to garments and speeches. I loved getting to see designs by Christian Dior, all of his drawings were really interesting to see what was going on in his mind to create such brilliant work.
I had two favourite rooms, the first was a long room that was filled with garments, pictures, miniatures, jewels and shoes it was amazing to see all of these things all in one place and it went around in colour from reds to pinks, oranges, yellows, greens, blues, purples, blacks and whites. It was truly beautiful.
The other was one of the last rooms and it was filled with dresses that were made for special occasions like big balls and award ceremonies. It was so sparkly and fantastic!
The outfits went all the way up to the ceiling giving a real insight into just how many different garments the Dior label has created, and showcasing just how magnificent they really are.
I really liked the room that was filled with toiles, for someone like me this was brilliant to see all of the stages that the big fashion houses go through and see all of the similarities of what I have to do.
They had thought of everything to make sure that this exhibition was excellent and it really showed, from the layout to the ceiling everything was beautiful. Here are a few more pictures that I took whilst I was there.
If you have the opportunity to visit this exhibition I highly recommend it as it was one of the best decisions of mine to go as I learnt so much whilst I was there.
