The magnificent 70th
The last Parisian retrospective dedicated to Christian Dior was held in 1987 at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs. It focused on a decade of the couturier's designs from 1947 to 1957. To celebrate the house's 70th anniversary, a new retrospective, open until January 7, shows how Dior and the six artistic directors who followed on his heels built up the influence of a name that is the very embodiment of haute couture. Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons and Maria Grazia Chiuri have created a style and a vocabulary that stays true to the House of Dior's identity.
