“The detail is as important as the essential is. When it is inadequate, it destroys the whole outfit.” — Christian Dior
A couple of years ago, I went to an exhibition called The House of Dior: Seventy Years of Haute Couture, at the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne.
I doubt anyone could ever call me a fashionista, but I do love beautiful things — and that exhibition was a feast of beautiful things.
“A dress is a piece of ephemeral architecture, designed to enhance the proportions of the female body.” — Christian Dior
Understandably, the gallery lighting wasn’t great for photography, but I hope these few images can convey some of the design genius and attention to detail that has made the House of Dior famous.
