The much anticipated new exhibition “Christian Dior – The Designer of Dreams” at the Victoria and Albert Museum, running from 2nd February until 14th July, will trace the history and influence of one of the 20th century’s most important couturiers, spanning from 1947 to the present day. This exhibition will showcase approximately 500 objects from accessories, illustrations, Dior’s personal possessions to fashion photography, making it the most comprehensive exhibition ever staged in the UK on the House of Dior.

Approximately 200 glamourous couture gowns and outfits will be displayed, each painstakingly fashioned by hand. The exhibition’s highlight undoubtedly will be the magnificent dress Princess Margaret wore to celebrate her 21st birthday in 1951. This fairytale white tulle gown, adorned with asymmetric gold embroidery was immortalised in the Princess’ official birthday portrait taken by Cecil Beaton.

Dior’s fabulous creations, worn by the elite of society, would have been carefully paired with similarly exquisite jewellery, often by the most famous jewellery houses such as Cartier, Harry Winston and Van Cleef & Arpels to name a few.

Dior was an expert in creating curving shapes and silhouettes, using ingenious techniques with hip padding and bodices to create models with wasp-waists. He is quoted as saying "I have designed flower women" and favoured the curvaceous forms of cocktail rings and elegant accessories to enhance the female form.
