The Dior Museum called the Dior La Galerie in Paris, France is the most beautiful museum I’ve ever seen! A sensory treat for the eyes. As a woman I especially appreciated that this museum is an ode to the female form 👗.
The start of this magical tour
“My childhood home was roughcast in a very soft pink mixed with grey gravel, and these two colors have remained my favourite colours in couture.” Christian Dior
“The coutiriers have such a beautiful role to play. They are the last possesors of the wand of Cinderella’s fairy Godmother.”
Les Jardins Enchantes. The Enchanted Gardens
“I drew flowerlike women. Shoulders rounded, buds in full bloom, waists as thin as vines, and skirts as wide as corollas.” Christian Dior
At Dior the garden has always served as a common thread between eras, territories, places of creation and expression.
Dior’s passion for flowers began at his childhood home in Normandy, France. Here Dior marveled at the changing garden by the sea. As a couterier Dior continued to get inspiration from nature, creating with his first collection “Femme-fleur” – “Flower-Like Woman.”
The Enchanted Garden
Christian Dior’s appreciation for nature and the garden played a huge role in all the clothes he designed. Dior’s lucky flower was the Lily of the Valley which he made into his house symbol.
An emphasise on feminine curves is born in 1947
In 1947 Dior introduced the Bar Suit with a nipped waist, sloping shoulders and flared skirts. The Dior style was born and his aspiration of highlighting feminine curves was born.
Miss Dior. The birth of ready-to-wear clothing
In 1967 Dior introduced their first ready-to-wear collection. A new collection that perpetuated Dior’s ambition to dress all women.
