Christian Dior
In celebration of the House of Dior’s 70th anniversary, the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) is pleased to announce a new exhibition featuring signature pieces from one of the Museum’s most treasured, yet rarely seen collections. Opening on November 25, 2017, Christian Dior, presented by Holt Renfrew, focuses on the ground-breaking early designs of famed couturier Monsieur Christian Dior.

Spanning the years 1947 to 1957, the exhibition explores Dior’s masterful creations which revived the Paris haute couture industry following the Second World War. In 1947, the opening of the new couture house and the presentation of Christian Dior’s revolutionary New Look—with soft shoulders, padded hips, and long, full skirts—swept away the masculine wartime styles. One of the most important designers of the 20th century, Christian Dior’s feminine fashions were desired, worn, and emulated by women around the world.

Christian Dior is on display from Saturday, November 25, 2017 to Sunday, March 18, 2018.
The exhibition is separately ticketed. Pricing for Adults is $8 in addition to General Admission. ROM
Members always enjoy free admission.
