Book of the Month // Christian Dior at the V&A
Opening this weekend, Saturday 2nd February, the much anticipated Christian Dior exhibition at London’s V&A Museum has nearly sold out. Spanning 1947 to the present day, this exhibition will trace the history and impact of one of the 20th century’s most influential couturiers, exploring the enduring influence of the fashion house, and Dior’s relationship with Britain. Of course a fabulous book accompanies this magnificent exhibition which began it’s series of preview viewings last night.
