I tried visiting the Dior exhibit when it opened months ago but tickets were sold out. With encouragement from a friend, I booked tickets for the last weekend of the exhibit. Here are the highlights. (highlights is an understatement. You will experience a sensory overload, as I did on the tour.) Enjoy!
This is one of my favorite dresses.
Normally a person in my shot would be nixed. But she provides an interesting contrast to the photo.
Another favorite dress.
A proper gladiator dress…
I was fascinated by the use of newspaper.
Someday I hope to wear a branch on my head with a bird.
A proper dress for a warrior.
That was the Dior exhibit in a nutshell!
While you may not have any interest in garment sewing hopefully this post will inspire you to pursue your own creative interests. You don’t have to produce at this caliber – just get lost in the action of creating for your own enjoyment.
Sunday, October 27th, 2019 is the last day for the exhibit. Book yourself a ticket. It’s worth the trip. (Tickets are $25 for adults. Parking is $15 or take the Dart.) The rest of the Dallas Museum of Art is free – spend an entire day getting inspired.
