The house of Dior - Seventy years of Haute Couture
In celebration of one of the most prestigious couture houses in the world, the National Gallery of Victoria is delighted to present The House of Dior: Seventy Years of Haute Couture at NGV International from 27 August to 7 November 2017. Exclusive to Melbourne and the NGV, the exhibition will present more than 140 garments designed between 1947 and 2017, including some of the most outstanding, theatrical and technically accomplished pieces from Christian Dior Couture. Visitors are invited to explore Christian Dior’s early influences and the design codes synonymous with Dior, as well as the milestones of the six successive designers who have shaped Dior’s renowned fashionable silhouette. Highlights of the exhibition include examples from Christian Dior’s iconic spring 1947 ‘New Look’ collection, magnificent displays of Dior’s signature ball gowns and evening dresses, and designs from the inaugural couture collection of the House’s first female creative director, Maria Grazia Chiuri.
The National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) is the oldest and most visited gallery in Australia. Situated over two magnificent buildings in Melbourne – NGV International and NGV Australia – the Gallery presents over 40 exhibitions a year from a wide range of international and local artists, spanning major international historic exhibitions to contemporary art, fashion and design.
