The Dallas Museum of Art exhibition "Dior: From Paris to the World"
showcases almost 200 runway dresses from the House of Dior, from the 1940s until the present day. That's a lot. So many that the DMA has turned over its entire barrel vault and four side galleries for the exhibition. It's pretty much just dresses and the attendance the day we went looked about 10:1 women to men, but I found it well worth the hour we spent inside the exhibit. But, confession: "Project Runway" is one of my guilty pleasures.
More photos after the jump.
The Dior exhibit at DMA was fantastic, but trying to absorb and appreciate essentially multiple generations of creativity was almost too much. When you think about, essentially, the engineering of turning a 2-dimensional item (cloth) into these beautiful 3 dimensional items . . . well, it simply boggles the mind. The exhibit is well worth the time and energy to see. I may make a second trip to capture a bit more of the creative genius on display.
