Inside “Christian Dior, Designer Of Dreams” Exhibition in Paris

Categories:Fashion

The haute couture fashion house Dior is celebrating 70 years of its existence. Dior, founded by the designer Christian Dior, entered the fashion world on February 12, in the distant 1947. Since then the brand had many extremely talented creative directors. In honor of the legendary founder and the creative directors who followed there is an exhibition to showcase their work. The main event at the Haute Couture Paris Fashion Week “Christian Dior, Designer of Dreams” is taking place at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris.

Throughout the years Dior had some of the greatest designers of all times as creative directors. The grand Christian Dior was followed by Marc Bohan, Yves Saint Laurent, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons, and the current director Maria Grazia Chiuri who is the first female creative director for the brand. The innovative designers scandalized the fashion world many times throughout the years. The former creative director John Galliano brought his idea for papal vestments at the A/W 2000 Dior Show, while Chiuri started a revolution with her “We should all be feminists” t-shirts.

With such a rich history it’s no wonder why the brand decided to throw its biggest retrospective ever. The exhibition features over 300 dresses from the fashion house’s archive as well as pieces from private collections and museums. According to Musée des Arts Décoratifs, this is the largest exhibition shown at this space.

The grand exhibition is divided into 23 different themes curated by Florence Muller. The themes have its own rooms dedicated to the individual work of Christian Dior and the other creative directors. Their creations are surrounded by art and furniture carefully chosen by the museum’s director Olivier Gabet. The rooms have different settings such as gallery, garden, street, and boudoir. Besides clothing pieces, the exhibition shows authentic private letters, accessories, and pieces never shown to the public before.

Dior is well-known for its spectacular exhibitions around the world. Besides exhibitions, the brand has its own museum in Christian Dior’s Granville house. The fashion house publishes 3 to 4 books a year and a quarterly magazine. They also filmed the documentary “Dior and I” in 2014 that screened designer Raf Simon’s creative work for Christian Dior. Anyway, their latest exhibition was an event that surpassed everyone’s expectations. From the pieces to the setting everything was a true treat for the fashion admirers especially the Dior fanatics.

5 COOL ACCESSORIES FOR SUMMER 2017

Categories:Fashion

With summer here, looking to upgrade your wardrobe should be one of your top priorities. You may be dreaming of your swimwear, shorts or rompers, but have you focused on accessories yet? When it comes to completing your outfit, accessories are the perfect finishing touch. We rounded up five different accessories that will take your summer style to the next level.

HANDBAGS

One way to complete your summer look is with a handbag. You may think that just running around with a basic tote bag is the perfect way to accent your outfit, but you would be wrong. Make sure to update your summer ensemble with a handbag in woven straw, bright pastels or colorful prints. It is an easy way to start a conversation or take your outfit to a whole new level. You can find handbags at many outlets, and for great prices on fashion accessories check out AreaTrend deals. Even if you are not a fan of bold colors, an accent of bright pink or blue is a good finishing touch.

SUNGLASSES

Another accessory that is perfect for summer is of course sunglasses. With the sun out, you will need to shield your eyes in style. Whether you are going to the beach for swim season or just hanging out with friends in casual style, sunglasses are the perfect touch. Choose from classic cat eye silhouettes to oversized round frames and angular square shapes. A tortoiseshell print is great for those looking for a classic look. Or if you want to stand out, embrace white frames to draw attention to your face. And there are always the signature black frames like Audrey Hepburn’s look in ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’.

HATS/HAIR ACCESSORIES

If you want to beat the heat for summer, wearing a nice wide-brimmed hat is perfect to get the sun out of your face. We love a wide-brimmed sunhat made of straw, a baseball cap for a more casual look or even a sporty visor. And you can even branch out from basic black or navy. Rock floral prints, bold stripes or bow embellishments. Another thing to wear for the summer are headbands to keep your hair out of your face or just add a stylish touch to your look.

JEWELRY

With the warm weather you also want to wear on-trend jewelry. Try to keep your look light and effortless with colorful gems. Whether you are shopping on a budget or have open options, you can add some personality to your summer style with choices like rose gold, bohemian-style tassels and long silhouettes. But make sure to not layer too many jewelry pieces since it may make your outfit look clunky and uncouth.

BELTS

The final accessory that will complete your summer wardrobe is a belt. They are not just for wearing with pants, but they are also great with a dress to get a cinched look. You should already have a classic black or brown belt, but embracing bold colors can really upgrade your look. Choose from gilded gold to on-trend pink and cobalt blue for a statement-making look.
