Running from 7 February until 7 April 2019, the exhibition of fashion photography showcases the legendary designs of Christian Dior and its enduring impact on the fashion world. Not only is The House of Dior renowned for revitalising both haute couture and ready-to-wear fashion, it also reinvented the female silhouette and its legacy continues to inspire modern style.
Documenting the brand throughout its first two decades, Proud Galleries’ The Dior Collection showcases the iconic works of Mark Shaw, Norman Parkinson, Jerry Schatzberg, Bert Stern and Horst P Horst, from the polished editorial shots capturing well-known figures for Life magazine, to behind-the-scenes studio snapshots.
