Inspiration Dior, Fashion as Art

On February 12, 1947, Christian Dior presented his first collection on Avenue Montaigne. The revolution is underway and the new look is born. Unknown until that moment, the genius designer, who revered the French way of life entered a triumphant decade, providing women with a sublime look.
In this major exhibition ” Inspiration Dior,” the Pushkin Museum showcases Dior magic and luxury while emphasizing the outstanding house’s links with art. The key themes of the Dior legend – past and present – are presented on a grand scale in original fashion, set against unique works of art.

The new look is echoed in works by Picasso, Modigliani, Renoir, Cezanne and Gauguin. Nudes by Vanessa Beecroft, Maurizio Cattelan  and Orlan emphasize the modern lines of the female body, accentuated by Christian Dior.

Inspiration Dior is an enchanting waltz through time with lush gardens and recollections of the 18th century and the Belle Epoque, Marie-Antoinette meets Jeff Koons. Bonnard’s landscapes celebrates Dior’s flower-women. This exhibition takes the visitor in a fabulous journey around the world, Spain via Goya, heady Orient via Matisse and of course Russia and Asia.

About frenchychic

Born and raised in Paris, I am a Marketing and Sales professional. And now, I am a blogger! I used to be Australian, German and French (Parisian) and now a Londoner lady since February 2010. I love everything about France: the food, the wine, the fragrances, the designers, the music and our attitude, energy & character. My blog is not all about cosmetics nor fashion, is about what is happening in the world in a French perspective: how do we think? What do we think? Why do we thing like this? And what do we French think about YOU strangers from all over the world! It was my passion for arts, culture, international events & news, fashion that drove me into creating La French Attitude and I love every minute of it and I hope you too! Enjoy! Sté xxx
