"Deep in every heart slumbers a dream and the couturier knows it: every woman is a princess." Christian Dior once said, maybe with a degree of exaggeration but first and foremost with an unusual ambition to dress women of his time.
It is true that he knew how to unveil the princely part of every woman's body, offering them a tremendously modern and sophisticated silhouette on a platter. Even though his creations are reserved for the elite, they went beyond the private sphere of the bourgeois fashion and became symbols which now have the place of honor for a six-month exhibition at the musée des Arts Décoratifs.
Christian Dior revolutionised the post-war fashion, he breathed extravagance into the too conventional dresses of the women from the 50's and launched a large business where couture is an art.
Christian Dior used to be a gallery owner and he was in fact an enlightened art lover, for that reason the exhibition features many works of art - which have influenced his couturier state of mind - alongside the 400 selected dresses (from the House of Dior origins to the most recent creations).
The museum and its delightful desire to highlight the contemporary facet of his work and of his successors make a big splash. You will be overwhelmed by your emotions.
