UPDATE: The V&A Is Extending 'Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams' Exhibition

Due to unexpected demand and sold-out tickets.

UPDATE: Due to the unexpected demand of its sell-out Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams exhibition, the Victoria & Albert museum has decided to extend the show by seven weeks. Originally set to wrap up on July 14, 2019, the show will now run until September 1, 2019, with additional tickets on-sale through the V&A Website.

Since opening on February 2 this year, 121,566 visitors have experienced the exhibition to date. Learn more about the huge exhibition below, and make sure to pay a visit if you’re passing through London within the next few months.


For those of you who haven’t already heard, Dior is headed to London. For an exhibition, that is – the biggest and most comprehensive retrospective on the house of Dior that’s ever been staged in the UK. For a luxury brand that’s been going strong for over 70 years, that’s a whole lot of history and “Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams” at the Victoria & Albert Museum does an excellent job of distilling seven decades of changing the face of fashion into one compelling exhibition.

There will be over 500 objects and over 200 super-rare couture pieces on display – some taken from Dior’s archives and others from private owners – alongside photography, film, magazines, illustrations, cosmetics and even Christian Dior’s personal possessions. Highlights include the fairytale dress designed for Princess Margaret’s 21st birthday, the iconic Bar Suit that’s been credited with kick-starting the “New Look” and the stunning, golden Galliano-designed dress worn by Charlize Theron in the J’adore fragrance campaign.

There will also be a section dedicated to Christian Dior’s love of Britain, which explores his ties to the Royal Family and the country house locations in which he staged some of his initial fashion shows. Of course, the legacy of Dior has come a long way since it was founded in 1946, and it’s gone through several creative directors after the passing of its eponymous designer. This exhibition will also showcase a look at pieces produced by all six of the other legendary names that have taken the helm of the brand, including Yves Saint Laurent, John Galliano, Raf Simons and the current leader, Maria Grazia Chiuri.

“Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams” opens at the V&A on February 2 2019, but you can book tickets now and get more info on the V&A’s website.
