The ROM Announces Their Next Fashion Exhibit (And It’s a Good One)
Christian Dior is no doubt one of the world’s most iconic fashion labels. To celebrate the house’s 70th anniversary, the ROM will host a special exhibition in Dior’s honour. Debuting on November 25th, visitors will have the opportunity to see post Second World War era (1947-1957) Dior creations which helped to revive haute couture. The exhibition will feature 40 designs arranged according to time of day: day (coats, suits, and day dresses); late afternoon to early evening (cocktail and dinner dresses); and grand occasion (ball and formal gowns). Original sketches, contemporary film, photography and advertisements will round out the collection.
“It is safe to say that few people have had as great an influence on shaping the modern aesthetic as Christian Dior,” says ROM CEO Josh Basseches. “This exhibition is another example of the Museum’s ongoing commitment to addressing topics that engage our visitors and feel relevant to their lives.”
