Dior her itage and Amer ican cu ltu re r ub shou lders at the
Brookly n Museu m After its resounding success at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, the Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams exhibition travelled to New York s Brooklyn Museum. A selection of archives and gowns retrace the Maison s history and close affinity with America. The exhibit opens with a voyage through time and space that reveals the cultural and artistic journey of founder Christian Dior from 30 avenue Montaigne to the heart of cosmopolitan America. Dior s very first haute couture creations some of which have never been
seen by the public are exhibited alongside exceptional Brooklyn Museum pieces, offering visitors a remarkable interplay between Dior s unique heritage and the New York museum s rich collections. Visitors can also admire models worn by some of the world s most celebrated actresses, from Grace Kelly to Jennifer Lawrence. As the ultimate magical touch, the museum s central atrium evokes an enchanted garden under a star-covered sky, in reference to the couturier s lucky star.
