Historical exhibition Dior: From Paris to the World opens in Dallas – Lifestyle
The Dior: From Paris to the World The exhibition by the French fashion house Dior can be seen from May 19 to September 1 at the Dallas Museum of Art in Texas, USA.
The exhibition celebrates over 70 years of haute couture in a retrospective that shows the changes in fashion trends around the world over the decades and was examined by founding couturier Christian Dior and his successors.
In total, over 200 works have been curated by Sarah Schleuning, senior curator of decorative arts and design at the Dallas Museum of Art, in collaboration with Florence Müller, who curated a previous edition at the Denver Art Museum.
The event includes pieces from Dior’s New Look to the latest circus-inspired haute couture collection from Maria Grazia Chiuri. Many of the items on display allow guests to peek behind the haute couture curtains through memorabilia and other archived items.

Guests can view the atelier’s styles and prototypes that brought iconic collections into the world, as well as never-before-seen footage, rare archives, original sketches, and other items related to Dior perfumes and makeup.
With several reinterpretations from the previous Denver exhibition, the current Dior: From Paris to the World at the Dallas Museum of Art features brand new decor and items tailored to Dior’s history with the city.
The New York-based architect Shohei Shigematsu is responsible for adapting the scenography to the new environment, offering visitors 15 unique themed rooms with distinctive decor that combine exhibits with free works of art in the museum.
The Dallas show will exclusively feature a rare archive scrapbook of press clippings, photos, advertisements and sketches based on Christian Dior’s 1954 fashion show when he first introduced the H-line, a female silhouette with a slight accent in the waist. (ayr / wng)
