The exhibition ‘Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams’ is the largest and most comprehensive exhibition ever staged in the UK on the House of Dior.   Spanning 1947 to the present day, it traces the history and impact of one of the 20th century’s most influential couturiers. Original Dior pieces from the museum’s archive, together with additionally sourced items including accessories, fashion photography, film, makeup, illustrations and Dior’s personal possessions, all sit alongside 200 haute couture ensembles. Items worn by high-profile clients including Princess Margaret, Nancy Mitford and Margot Fonteyn are amongst the exhibits.
