DIOR WONDERLAND: A historical look at an Icon

Whilst I’m a Selfridges girl through and through, I recently defected to Harrods solely to visit their current Dior exhibition. After a minor detour in TopShop I made my way to the 3rd floor of London’s poshest department store to pay homage to a haute couture icon – Christian Dior. The expansive project – which includes a café, exhibition, window display and pop-up shop – took over 18 months to create and was inspired by the fashion house’s long-term relationship with the famed London store.

I was blown away by the carefully curated historical pieces of fashion. The house of Dior has dressed everyone from Princess Diana to Audrey Hepburn. It was an amazing look into the history of the label from inception to present day. I only wish the exhibition had been bigger!
