Having previously held exhibitions looking at sustainable fashion and Balenciaga, London’s Victoria & Albert museum is now set to host a large-scale exhibition about Christian Dior. “Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams” will open early next year and is based around the Parisian house’s 70th-anniversary exhibition from 2017, as well as the designer’s relationship with Britain.

As well as featuring looks designed by Christian Dior, the exhibition will feature work from the designers who followed him at the house, including Yves Saint Laurent, John Galliano, Raf Simons and the incumbent, Maria Grazia Chiuri. The exhibition is the V&A’s largest fashion-themed exhibit since 2015’s Alexander McQueen retrospective.

Announcing the exhibition, curator Oriole Cullen explained that “the influence of Christian Dior’s design was all-pervasive and helped to define an era. In their own individual ways, each of the House’s successive artistic directors have referenced and reinterpreted Dior’s own designs and continued the legacy of the founder, ensuring that the House of Christian Dior is at the forefront of fashion today. More than seventy years after its founding, the V&A’s exhibition will celebrate the enduring influence of the House of Dior and uncover Dior’s relationship with Britain.”

“Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams” will open on February 2, 2019 and will run until July 14.
