Since his debut collection, art gallerist turned legendary couturier Christian Dior has generated an epic movement in fashion history. With lavish embroidery, luxurious fabrics, and elegant silhouettes, his designs were a revolutionary celebration of modern femininity when they emerged in Paris after World War II. Today, Dior’s global influence is as enduring and iconic as ever. Dior: From Paris to the World surveys more than 70 years of the House of Dior’s legacy, featuring a dynamic selection of almost 200 haute couture dresses, as well as accessories, photographs, original sketches, runway videos, and other archival material.
This exhibition profiles both Dior himself and subsequent artistic directors, including Yves Saint Laurent (1958–1960), Marc Bohan (1961–1989), Gianfranco Ferré (1989–1996), John Galliano (1997–2011), Raf Simons (2012–2015), and Maria Grazia Chiuri (2016–present), all of whom have carried Dior’s vision into the 21st century.
Adult tickets are $20 Tuesday–Thursday, and $25 Friday–Sunday, with discounts for seniors, students, and military. DMA Members can reserve their free tickets online. Children 11 and under are free. Extra hours have been added for visitors to see "Dior: From Paris to the World" for the entire month of August. The exhibition will be open from 10:00 a.m. through 8:00 p.m. August 1–31.
