House of Dior Exhibition – NGV

Hope you are all well fantastic human beings! x

As the House of Dior exhibition closes in a couple of days, I would like to share a few of my favourite pieces at the event for those who missed out and admire these spectacular garments.

I brightened the images as much as I could on the picture as I wasn’t allowed to add flash, but this garment really caught my eye, due to the simplicity of the design through the use of curved lines and dots and how it can be put together to be an amazing garment. I also really appreciate the layers of fabric sewn to frills at the bottom of the dress.As a lot of you may have noticed, the gingham pattern is very popular this year and to see it used in a classic Dior design is pretty awesome! Something that really engaged me to this design, was the shaping of the garment and the large bow which draws you to the jacket.Something really special about Christian Dior is he was greatly inspired by his mothers garden in his garments. The skirt of the far right was inspired by one of his mother’s flower beds, which adds a beautiful and sentimental significance to his pieces. All three of these dresses are absolutely incredible and are definitely inspiring to you reading who want to have a successful fashion brand one day! Two words… IN LOVE. Something about this skirt just grabbed me. The use of these colours are a perfect combination and the material quantity is spot-on. The garment shaping is aesthetically pleasing and you can just imagine yourself walking down the street, with this skirt flowing, can you not? All about that garment construction. This displayed how the pieces are constructed and the mockups to see how the garments would work.There is nothing better than a detailed garment. Being into textiles design and those of you who are textiles designers, can appreciate the time and effort that must have gone into the construction of this dress. The texture and sequins make the garment stand out. I wish I could wear this dress 🙁Shoes for days. If you love shoes as much as I do, look at these bad boys. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. I just couldn’t get over the amount of beauty and the talent that had gone into the making of these shoes. The boots at the front are my favourite, due to those outstanding heals and the elegant floral pattern displayed on them.

Comment below and tell me what you thought. The exhibition was honestly inspiring and well done to the National Gallery Victoria for putting this on and giving me and many others to experience to see such wonderful pieces.

Thanks for reading.
