Christian Dior has finally arrived at The ROM! The new exhibit displays how Christian Dior boosted female morale after the Second World War. After increased female participation in the war, women were tired of wearing boring, practical clothing and Dior was their answer.  His return to feminine, beautiful, elegant looks was exactly what women needed at that time. This exposition shows prominent examples of Dior’s creations from 1947-1957.  Evening wear, jewellry, perfume, embroidery, wedding wear, fashion sketches, and ribbon record books don’t even stratch the surface of what this exhibition has to offer. This Dior exposé is presented by Holt Renfrew to commemorate the 70th anniversary of Christian Dior’s fashion. Dr. Alexander Palmer is the phenomenal curator behind this captivating exhibit that offers a peek into the influence of Dior’s fashion during a bleak time in history.  I think that anyone who loves fashion and/or history would love to see all of the magnificent features of this exhibition. However, if you do not like history or fashion you would probably still love to go and see the captivating pieces displayed (I even got my dad to go). I think that Holt Renfrew and Dr. Alexander Palmer did a phenomenal job in commemorating Dior after 70 years of incredible fashion.
