“Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams” Puts its Stamp on Shanghai

By Eliza Jordan

July 28, 2020

Since its inception in 2017, “Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams” has dazzled two cities with the art of couture. Previously presented at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the enchanting exhibition is now making its way to Shanghai. On view today through October 4 at the Long Museum West Bund is the house’s retrospective of art and fashion from over seven decades, curated by Oriole Cullen.

Included in the show are more than 250 dresses, illustrations by René Gruau and Christian Bérard, and works created in collaboration by distinguished Chinese artists like Xu Bing and Lin Tianmiao. Archival documents like photographs, sketches, and perfumes are also presented. This amalgamation of traditional art, craft in couture, and historic heritage commemorates the bond between the house and China that dates back to 1947.

Arranged in 14 themes, the show brings into view the passion found within Dior’s DNA—from its creative directors over the years to inspirations like Parisian gardens and glamour.
