The exhibition consists of garments, sketches, videos and photos spanning from 1947 to the present day

On February 2, 2019, the Victoria & Albert (V&A) museum in London will open the largest and most comprehensive exhibition ever staged in the UK on the house of Dior. Spanning 1947 to the present day, Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams will trace the history and impact of the couturier, and the six artistic directors who have succeeded him at his namesake brand.

The exhibition will present over 500 objects, with over 200 rare haute couture garments shown alongside accessories, including Princess Margaret’s 21st birthday dress and Jennifer Lawrence’s red-carpet couture.

“In 1947, Christian Dior changed the face of fashion with his New Look, which redefined the female silhouette and reinvigorated the post-War Parisian fashion industry. The V&A recognized Dior’s important contribution to design history early on in his career, acquiring his sketches and garments from the 1950s onwards,” explained Oriole Cullen, fashion and textiles curator at the V&A, in a statement.
