Easily one of the best museum shows of 2021 – Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams at the Brooklyn Museum, on view through February 20, 2022. It chronicles the design house from the beginning under Mr. Dior himself and all the other designers that followed – Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons and the latest Maria Grazia Chiuri. The exhibition brings into view many sources of Dior’s inspiration—from flowers and other natural forms to classical and contemporary art which together is magically transformed in the beautiful haute couture pieces. The Dior brand continues to delight fashion aficionados and inspire other creatives with its elegant and sophisticated designs true to the house’s legacy.
