Dior’s ‘Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams’ Exhibition which has travelled around the world will open its doors in the Middle East for the first time in a partnership between Dior and Qatar Museums.
The retrospective exhibition which is dedicated to the heritage of the house of Dior will take place in Doha at M7, the design and innovation hub located in Msheireb Downtown Doha, from November 2021 to March 2022.
The exhibition will be adapted specifically for Qatar, with some pieces making their public debut. This new edition follows its success at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris and several museums around the world, including London and New York.
Featuring a new scenographic narrative, the exhibition, curated by Olivier Gabet, Director of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, will display previous and new haute couture designs by Christian Dior. This includes the famous Bar suit, which is a white satin jacket with soft shoulders, nipped-in waist, and flowering black skirt, that launched the New Look in 1947 and redefined femininity and Paris as a city of youth and newness.
Also on display will be original sketches by the legendary designer for his couture collections, a baccarat blue crystal limited edition Miss Dior perfume bottle from 1947 and haute couture creations by succeeding Dior creative directors such as John Galliano, Raf Simons and Yves Saint Laurent.
