Here's your chance to visit Christian Dior, Designer of Dreams, and see why it's one of the most successful fashion exhibitions of the last few years

Museums all over the world are presenting virtual exhibitions that enable people to escape from the monotony of lockdown with cultural experiences that can be explored from home. Rallying to the cause, the Dior luxury house is now offering a free virtual tour of one of the most successful fashion exhibitions of recent years, Christian Dior, Designer of Dreams.

If you've been bingeing on series on Netflix and Amazon Prime Video since the beginning of the lockdown, and you're starting to yearn for culture with a capital "C," the good news is that you can visit one of the most successful fashion exhibitions of the last few years without having to move from your couch. Dior has just posted an online tour of Christian Dior, Designer of Dreams which looks back on more than seven decades of creation at the French luxury house, from Christian Dior to Maria Grazia Chiuri.

Initially presented at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris from July 5, 2017 to January 7, 2018 and then at London's V&A in 2019, the exhibition offers an hour-long immersion in the worlds of luxury ready-to-wear and haute couture, and an introduction to the many inventive designers who have worked for Dior. Starting with the style, talent, and visionary spirit of Christian Dior himself, the show also gives you a chance to discover some of his famous successors, including such legendary creative directors as Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, John Galliano and Maria Grazia Chiuri.
