Moscow art museum honors Dior
Wednesday 27 April 2011
After the John Galliano debacle, Christian Dior can use all the positive publicity it can get, and a new retrospective of its history at the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts sets out to bring back the fashion house's magic.
Opening on April 28, the exhibit showcasing the brand's 64-year history will not only present its collections over the years - designed by the founder itself as well as the likes of Yves Saint Laurent or Gianfranco Ferré - but also juxtapose them with works of art by Van Gogh or Klimt as well as photographs by Richard Avedon and Man Ray. Galliano's creations are also part of the exhibition.
According to the Voice of Russia newspaper, exhibition halls will be themed, with one focusing on the flower motif, another on Dior's work process, and so on. The luxury house's famous perfumes as well as statement accessories will also be on display.
