‘Inspiration Dior’

If you are still wondering what is going to happen to Dior after John Galliano, I too have no idea. Perhaps in a bid to take our minds off that same query, Dior has an exhibition that starts tomorrow at the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts Moscow will show us how and where Dior gets their inspirations, pointing us to their colourful past and taking our minds off the uncertain future.


Miss Dior short evening dress, S/S 1949 collection, Trompe-L’oeil Line. Dress embroidered with a thousand flowers.

Be it through ‘history, nature, painting, sculpture, drawing, photography or film’, we will see how ‘an idea, a feeling, an era, a garden, a perception or even a smell’ might lead to something new.

We see how the birth of a new look started with founder Christian Dior’s first collection in 1947 and like they say, the rest is history.

Whatever happens to Dior from here forth, let’s not forget the heritage of the House of Dior and how far they have come. Let’s watch intently at how the new chapter will unfold into another inspirational tale.
