“Dior: From Paris to the World” is scribbled across the top of the entrance to the exhibit as people crowd inside. The entrance is shaded with a French building facade, hiding all the fashion house’s secrets within. Tickets for the exhibit were sold out for six weeks prior. The exhibit consists of hundreds of mannequins adorned in extravagant dresses that leave the audiencing gawking in amazement.
“Dior: From Paris to the World,” is the Denver Art Museum’s newest exhibit, featuring the 70 year history of the Dior Fashion House. The exhibit features photographs, runway videos, drawings, jewelry, and of course loads of couture clothing. The founder of Dior, Christian Dior, created the first worldwide fashion house in 1946 in Paris, France. The exhibit highlights the many designers, as Christian Dior cultivated his reputation and revolutionized fashion for a decade, before he died of a heart attack in 1956. There have been six successors from the creation till now: Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons, and Maria Grazia Chiuri. Each designer has had a unique style that brings new idea and flare to the company while respecting Dior’s original vision for the brand.
The exhibit itself is breathtaking and awe inspiring. Kelsey McHugh, a sophomore at AHS, visited the exhibit in November and it made a large impression on her.
“It really moved me because I think art has the power, through it’s contagious sense of creativity, to change the world we live in for the better,” McHugh said.
Here are twelve photos from the “Dior: From Paris to the World,” exhibit.
