For the first time in the Middle East, the House of Dior reveals a retrospective dedicated to its exceptional heritage. The retrospective features a selection of pieces that have never been seen before, including ensembles and outfits from the private collection of Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser.
Curated by Olivier Gabet and designed by Nathalie Crinière especially for Qatar, Christian Dior Designer of Dreams celebrates nearly 75 years of creative passion.
The exhibition features haute couture designs past and present, designed by Christian Dior and the Artistic Directors who succeeded him – Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons and Maria Grazia Chiuri – as well as a selection of works and decorative objects from the collections of the musée des Arts décoratifs.
Perpetuating the visionary spirit of Christian Dior, a number of House icons will also be on display, including versions of the Lady Dior bag reinterpreted for the Dior Lady Art project, singular reflections of the House’s history.
Christian Dior Designer of Dreams is sponsored by Qatar Airways and Place Vendôme. The exhibition is part of the ongoing cultural legacy established as part of the Qatar-France 2020 Year of Culture, an initiative celebrating the longstanding ties between both nations.
Christian dior: Designer of Dreams exhibition will be presented at the M7; Qatar’s leading design, innovation and creatives hub situated in Msherib Downtown Doha. The event will continue from November, 2021 to March, 2022
