Why You Should Visit the Dior Exhibition Before It's Too Late

So I don't know if you know that a Dior exhibition is taking place in Paris at the moment, but what is absolutely certain is that the Musée des Arts Décoratifs is the one place you need to pop by if you're visiting the French capital before 7th January 2018. 

Obviously I have a deep interest towards fashion, style and haute couture in general - the maison Dior being one of my favourites alongside Chanel and Valentino - however I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys art and beautiful garments (all made by "little hands", as we nickname seamstresses in French). The museum celebrates the 70th anniversary of the Maison Dior: it exhibits the world of its founder from 1947 as well as the creations of all the couturiers who took part in until now. First Yves Saint Laurent, then Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons and recently Maria Grazia Chiuri (finally a woman appointed as artistic director at Dior, about time!). 

To be honest I've been overwhelmed by the beauty of the place and immediately impressed by the setting of the exhibition, divided into different parts and atmospheres. I particularly loved how they mixed up fashion items which correspond to diverse periods in time to create a colourful rainbow of vintage red dresses, green bags, blue shoes, see-through bottles of perfume and glittering pieces of jewellery, all matching perfectly. While I kept telling myself "this is so beautiful" literally every minute, I discovered so much about the story of my perfume (Miss Dior), I could sense the style of every creative director through their collections and an Italian touch to the French maison, and was head-over-heels when I stepped in this gorgeous final nave you can see above. All in all, 3000 square metres of fashion essence and French savoir-faire, which turn out to be the most beautiful exhibition I've ever seen. 

Last advice before I let you book a trip there asap: this exhibition is so popular that I waited an hour and half before I could enter, so I would recommend to buy your ticket online before coming to see it not to waste any time. (Plus, discounts apply for 18-25yo so what are you waiting for? I think I paid 8€.) More here
