Dior: From Paris To The World explores 70 years worth of archives from dresses to accessories, photographs to sketches and videos. Curated in chronological order, the show is divided into eras that have been led by the Dior’s different creative directors.

There is no doubt that Christian Dior was followed by several brilliant successors: Yves Saint Laurent (1958–1960), Marc Bohan (1961–1989), Gianfranco Ferré (1989–1996), John Galliano (1997–2011), Raf Simons (2012–2015) and Maria Grazia Chiuri (2016 until the present).

Dior’s epic client list is just as impressive, with classic superstars like Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth, and Elizabeth Taylor to name a few.

More than 170 couture dresses will be on display in addition to accessories, costume jewelry, photographs, drawings, runway videos, and other archival material. 

“This show seeks to encourage the public to think differently about the boundaries between fashion and art, and to reveal the creativity and innovation that defines Dior," explains Christoph Heinrich, Director of D.A.M.

The exhibition is organized by the DAM and curated by French historian Florence Müller, DAM’s Avenir Foundation Curator of Textile Art and Fashion. Renowned architect Shohei Shigematsu— principal of OMA New York—took charge of the design.
