Last week I feasted my eyes on pieces of Dior, up-close and personal in Melbourne, and boy was it worth the trip! From the effortless lines and impeccable tailoring of Christian Dior’s own work, to the lavish and exuberant works by John Galliano, to the sweet and sophisticated pieces by Raf Simons, to some of the most recent pieces, full of bohemian charm, by the first female designer in Dior’s history, Maria Grazia Chiuri. We were spoilt for choice, eyes trying to drink it all in and memorise all the little delicious details.
It was an incredible collection of works, and took us over two hours to make our way through, feet screaming by the end! Well, mine at least, as I’d dressed up for the occasion, in my fave go-to hot-weather dress (was 31 degrees for us, yikes!), and my most comfortable heels. But they’re still heels, so there’s still pain after 2-3 hours of walking/standing. Fashion is hard work.
I was snap-happy with my camera (both phone and DSLR) throughout the exhibition, and it’s been sooo hard to pick only a handful of the best and most beautiful images to share with you! Enjoy!
