Dior: From Paris to the World exhibition opens soon at Denver Art Museum

DENVER, CO - NOVEMBER 13: The Bar jacket, created by Christian Dior himself for his Haute Couture Spring-Summer 1947, Corolle line, is on display for the upcoming Dior Show at the Denver Art Museum on November 13, 2018 in Denver, Colorado. This afternoon ensemble in silk shantung and pleated wool; replica made by Dior in 1987, Dior Héritage Collection. The exhibition, Dior: From Paris to the World, surveys 70 years of the House of Diors enduring legacy and its global influence. A selection of more than 200 couture dresses, as well as accessories, costume jewelry, photographs, drawings, runway videos, and other archival material, will trace the history of the iconic haute couture fashion house, its founder, Christian Dior, and the subsequent artistic directors who carried Diors vision into the 21st century. Christian Dior, the art gallerist who became a celebrated couturier, generated a revolution in Paris and around the globe after World War II. Dior created haute couture expressing modern femininity, completely shedding the masculine silhouette that had been established during the war. He conceived sophisticated designs featuring soft shoulders, accentuated busts and nipped waists that marked the beginning of an epic movement in fashion history that would eventually lead to Dior successfully becoming the first worldwide couture house. The chronological presentation, showcasing pivotal themes in the House of Diors history, will focus on how Christian Dior cemented his fashion houses reputation within a decade and will highlight how his successors, Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons, and Maria Grazia Chiuri, incorporated their own design aesthetic. The exhibition opens November 19, 2018. (Photo by Helen H. Richardson/The Denver Post via Getty Images)
