Dior 70 Year Retrospective

Always a must-see in Melbourne, the NGV (National Gallery of Victoria) is a highlight of the city for us. The current 70 year Dior retrospective is an amazing journey through the talent and creative force of the highly respected fahion house.

Words by Emma Eagle

If you're heading to Melbourne, don't miss seeing Dior – 70 Years. Not only a visual feast for the eyes of fashion lovers, the show highlights the journey of design and the response of each designer to the work of the house's founder, Monsieur Dior.

We were so impressed with the curatorship, exhibition display and the sense of being surrounded by the history and glamour of the Parisian atelier.
