For those LUXE travellers either based near, or travelling to, Dallas TX USA - you're in for a treat!
The ‘Dior: from Paris to the World’ exhibition has taken residence at the Dallas Museum of Art. 30 new looks are presented alongside updated works from Italian fashion designer Maria Grazia Chiuri of Dior.
Dior: from Paris to the World traces Dior’s history as well as its influences and inspirations through a selection of almost 200 haute couture dresses, accessories, photographs, original sketches, runway videos, and other archival material. The exhibition takes place in the Dallas Museum of Art’s barrel vault and the galleries surrounding it.
The space has been transformed into an infinite ‘catwalk’, enhancing its geometries and establishing the space as an extension of Flora. The stage draws upon Christian Dior's fall 1999 couture show at Versailles L’Orangerie, where the runway took place under a lofty vaulted ceiling. However in Dallas, it is the visitors who take to the catwalk, while the mannequins act as spectators.
A clear sequential journey is defined by a prescribed route. After entering through the façade of the Dior Paris atelier, visitors are taken through a polycarbonate tunnel that leads to the first set of rooms before the barrel vaulted runway is revealed. This sequence is followed by three additional galleries that explore themes that served as an inspiration to the house of Dior, alongside photographs and accessories. The exhibition will be on view at the Dallas Museum of Art from 19 May to 1 September, 2019.
