Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams at the V&A in London, has been extended to 1 September. Please go and see it! The exhibition spans the fashion house’s designs for the last 70 years and in that time some amazing names (Dior, Saint Laurent, Galliano, Raf Simons etc.) have gloriously maintained the essence of Dior which, for me, is style, sophistication and creative innovation.
This was a triumph of design. The settings for each space expertly and beautifully off-set the drama of the creations. Rooms were themed (‘Garden Room’ with paper flower garlands, the ‘Ballgown Room’).
I came away punchdrunk. There are certain colours I wear and other colours I love around me. This exhibition was off the scale colour-wise, and it was thrilling! It made me want to understand how colour affects me.
