Fashion house Dior is opening an exhibition at Long Museum West Bund
on July 28. It's the "Christian Dior, Designer of Dreams
," same as the one in the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris back in 2017-2018, and it's the buzziest thing at West Bund since COVID-19. The construction outside of Long has been going on for at least two months. The exhibition will display 275 pieces of haute couture and some of the designer’s original sketches, as well as an art installation from eight Chinese contemporary artists intended to line up with the narrative of the brand’s 70-year history. Even as big luxury brand exhibitions go (there was a Tiffany exhibition
last year), this one's highly anticipated. The exhibition will be on until October 4, and is probably going to be rammed. You'll want to book in advance through the exhibition’s WeChat mini program "克里斯汀迪奥 梦之设计师" (yes it’s that long) and prepare to show your suishenma
at the entrance.
