“Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams” brings glamor to the Brooklyn Museum
After its success at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, Christian Dior: Creator of Dreams landed in Brooklyn. Opened Friday at the Brooklyn Museum, the exhibition gives visitors a glimpse into the world of the French fashion house. With works by those who ran the label, including Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons and the current artistic director Maria Grazia Chiuri, Dream maker offers a fashionable journey through the history of Dior. Inside the museum, the Cour des Beaux-Arts has been transformed into something of a storybook, showcasing over 200 haute couture garments, photographs, videos, sketches, accessories and more, some of which are on display at the audience for the first time. The exhibition, which masterfully blends the art and heritage of Dior, is on display until February 20, 2022.
