The Christian Dior Museum honours iconic photographers in new exhibition
Featuring 200 images that encompass 60 years of design
Christian Dior is honouring its heritage this spring with an exhibition at its namesake museum in France. The exhibit The Legendary Images: Great Photographers and Dior will showcase the French house's history through iconic photos and other items of interest — paying tribute to the esteemed photographers who have captured the Christian Dior's lavish designs over the years.
The photography will include work by 80 fashion photographers, including Patrick Demarchelier, Cecil Beaton, Richard Avedon, Erwin Blumenfeld and Irving Penn. There will be 200 images that display 60 years of designs, as well as handful of documents that feature designs by Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, John Galliano, and recent looks from Raf Simons and Kriss Van Assche.
The exhibition debut will also coincide with the release of a new Rizzoli-published book of the same title, due out April 30.
The Legendary Images: Great Photographers and Dior will be running from May 3 to September 21 at The Christian Dior Museum in Granville, France.
