An immersive multimedia exhibition dedicated to one of the most influential people of the 20th century.

Starting on September 25, the McCord Museum is presenting an immersive multimedia exhibition dedicated to the famous French fashion designer, Christian Dior.

This exhibition explores the brilliance behind Dior’s dramatic creations and features more than 50 garments and many more accessories focusing on a crucial ten years of his career (1947 to 1957) when Dior was running his house after the devastation of the Second World War.

According to the museum’s website, it examines Dior’s iconic lines, luxury textiles, and romantic embroideries that laid the foundation for the fashion house’s global success. Featuring breathtaking fashions from daytime to evening wear for grand occasions, the exhibition invites visitors to discover the exquisite craftsmanship, intricate detail, and inspired luxury designs by this key figure from the Golden Age of haute couture.

Produced by the Royal Ontario Museum, the exhibition will include items drawn from the Royal Ontario Museum’s extensive collection of Christian Dior couture, and will be complemented by a dozen garments from the McCord Museum’s Dress, Fashion, and Textiles collection as well as loans from Dior Héritage, Paris.

Christian Dior opens Friday, Sept. 25, and continues through Jan. 3 at the McCord Museum, 690 Sherbrooke St. W. For more information, visit musee-mccord.qc.ca.
