Group Show: The Dior Collection

Tuesday, July 30th, 2019

‘The Dior Collection’ was an exhibition of fashion photography showcasing the legendary designs of Christian Dior and its enduring impact on the fashion world. The House of Dior is renowned for revitalising both haute couture and ready-to-wear fashion in the 20th Century and its legacy continues to inspire modern style. Documenting this remarkable brand throughout its first two decades, the exhibition displays the iconic works of Mark Shaw, Norman Parkinson, Jerry Schatzberg, Bert Stern and Horst P. Horst. From the polished editorial shots capturing well-known figures for Life magazine, to behind-the-scenes studio snapshots, The Dior Collection explores the creation of this revolutionary luxury brand and its reinvention of the female silhouette. Since creating his namesake fashion company in 1946, Christian Dior has become recognised as one of the founding figures of haute couture. After a meeting with entrepreneur Marcel Boussac, Christian Dior was invited to design for Philippe et Gaston, a Paris fashion house. Dior, who had been working in fashion for almost ten years, instead launched a new label under his own.
