Why ‘Dior, Couturier des Reves’ is this year’s must-see fashion exhibition – Telegraph.co.uk

Saturday, July 08, 2017

By the late 1950s, following Dior’s premature death, the 21-year-old Yves Saint Laurent had taken over. He introduced patent leather biker jackets before being conscripted to the army.  Marc Bohan, his successor, steered Dior through two successful if creatively unspectacular decades. The lack of catwalk excitement didn’t matter: Grace of Monaco was a loyal fan and the clothes were perfect for her. There’s a section of Princess gowns too –…
