We’re reeling from the one-two punch of the Christian Dior boutique opening and the accompanying “Dior Couture Patrick Demarchelier” exhibition curated by the house itself. The latter features dresses from the label’s storied archives alongside swoon-worthy photographs of haute couture taken by Monsieur Demarchelier. The show is divided into six themes, each exploring a 65-year legacy:
La Ligne Dior reveals the silhouette; Le Jardin Dior captures the master’s love of flowers; Le XVIIIe Siècle represents Versailles and Louis XVI style; Les Ateliers Dior celebrates couture craftsmanship; Du Rose Au Rouge focuses on the collection’s two most recognizable colors; and The Golden Ball centers around metallic color for eveningwear. Through April 19 in a temporary gallery near the Christian Dior boutique, 12 Highland Park Village, 214.520.6494.
