Haute Couture Lives On 高级时装映现


In celebration of the seventieth anniversary of The House of Dior’s debut spring-summer 1947 collection, the National Gallery of Victoria, Australia recently presented the never-before-seen exhibition The House of Dior: Seventy Years of Haute Couture. Exclusive to Melbourne, the exhibition is a collaboration between the NGV and the House of Dior, Paris, and features a sumptuous display of over 140 garments from Christian Dior Couture designed between 1947 and 2017.

The NGV has announced that two Dior haute couture works, especially commissioned for and acquired by the gallery, will be on display in the exhibition. They are Essence d’Herbier from the spring–summer 2017 collection, designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri and Look 10, Bar coat from the autumn-winter 2012–13 collection, designed by Raf Simons. Drawing primarily on material from the House of Dior archive and the NGV Collection, the exhibition also features accessories, sketches, photographs, haute couture toiles (prototypes) and multimedia.


The exhibition, first outside of Paris, will also explore Dior’s unique affinity with Australia, including the historic spring 1948 fashion parade at David Jones, Sydney, which featured 50 original creations by Christian Dior. It is also featuring the iconic grand, sweeping staircase used in countless photo shoots and fashion parades over the House’s 70-year history.

The exhibition opening was celebrated with the inaugural NGV Gala, a ticketed, black-tie ball on Saturday 26 August 2017. The proceeds from this event will go toward supporting the NGV Fashion and Textiles Collection.
