Tony Ell­wood, Ngv’s di­rec­tor, prom­ises that the ex­hi­bi­tion “will be a cel­e­bra­tion of dior's most land­mark mo­ments and de­signs, in­clud­ing their iconic 'New look' sil­hou­ette, which rev­o­lu­tionised women's fash­ion in the 1950s, through to the present-day con­tem­po­rary aes­thetic.”

Ms. Maria Grazia Chi­uri is dior’s most re­cent and first fe­male head de­signer. Her de­but col­lec­tion con­tains con­tem­po­rary pieces that, in Ms. Somerville's opin­ion, “sig­nal the be­gin­nings of a dis­tinct ap­proach. She is in­ter­ested in de­signs that res­onate with younger au­di­ences… while re­main­ing squarely in the tra­di­tional cou­ture realm.… What re­mains at the heart of all the eras of dior is the pow­er­ful al­lure of haute cou­ture with its ex­quis­ite ma­te­ri­als, tech­ni­cal prow­ess and larger-than-life trans­for­ma­tive po­ten­tial.”

Cel­e­bra­tions kick off with an in­au­gu­ral NGV Gala on Au­gust 26, a tick­eted black-tie ball whose pro­ceeds will go to­ward sup­port­ing the NGV Fash­ion and Tex­tiles Col­lec­tion. The ex­hi­bi­tion it­self runs from Au­gust 27 to Novem­ber 7. Dior - 70年的華麗再現

這次的展會中,除了 Dior 之外還 有 來 自 Yves Saint Lau­rent、marc Bo­han、gi­an­fran­co­ferre、john Gal­liano、Raf Si­mons 和 Maria Grazia Chi­uri 等品牌,將 20-21 世紀間最重要的時裝設計理念和最頂級設計師的作品一一展現。包括上世紀的球衣、晚禮服、配飾、頂級布料和設計師們的手繪原稿、珍貴照片以及檔案資料等。每一件作品、每一幅草圖都見證著品牌一路走來的艱辛、創意、靈感以及跨時代的時尚潮流。

融合幾十年的智慧與創意,譜寫出了時尚界的歷史。這個展覽僅在巴黎、紐約與墨爾本展出。這是Dior 第二次選擇了澳洲。

據說,第一次在澳洲落地是品牌走紅的第二年,「當時David Jones品牌的買家到了巴黎,與這家高級時裝品牌商談後,成功獲得該品牌在巴黎以外的獨家展出權。50 件 Dior設計師親制的服飾第一次 在悉尼市中心 David Jones的旗艦店展出。而此次的展覽,David Jones仍功不可沒。」 NGV的時尚資深策展經理 Katie Somerville 說道。

1948年Dior品牌進入澳洲之後,Chris­tian本人也與澳大利亞結下不解之緣。他甚至將當時作品的名字以「悉尼」、「墨爾本」命名,部分收藏更以法語命名為「澳大利亞 (Aus­tralie)」。他過世前的最後一場時裝走秀也是在澳洲舉辨的。
