“Every dress must have a soul” Christian Dior.
If you love dresses, especially the couture type, make sure you check out the “The Golden Age of Couture:London and Paris 1947-1957” Exhibition. Sponsored by fashion house Dior and the Hong Kong Leisure and Cultural Services Department, the exhibit which is curated by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London focuses on post-war couture during a decade (1947-1957) that Monsieur Christian Dior described as the “Golden Age” of fashion. This exhibition is a historical journey back to the past, and exploration on the creative, social and commercial aspects of couture during this era.
Aside from a photography exhibition which features famous photographs from Richard Avedon, documentary film and archived materials, there is a exhibition of more than thirty gorgeous dresses made by Monsieur Christian Dior and dresses created by current Artistic Director of Dior Haute Couture, John Galliano. This is a rare opportunity to view Christian Dior’s exquisite work, and the dresses that made him famous.
