Inspiration: Dior

Destination Moscow?  Don´t forget to make a stop at the Pushkin Museum to see this amazing tribute to Christian Dior and his work.  The exhibit features more than 100 dresses, and also features many pieces of design and art that inspired Dior to create his fashions.  Many people consider Dior not just a fashion designer, but also a sculpture and an artist, with the woman´s body being the sillhoutte he sculpts and paints on.  Apparently there are a lot of direct connections between art and his work. Make sure to  hurry up if you want to see it because it ends July 28th!

This exhibit sounds amazing and it makes me want to go to Moscow immediately. (Although it doesn´t take much convincing for me to travel…ahem I am fairly certain I will be in Moscow Sept 24 for the Britney Spears concert…unfort this exhibit will be gone by then)  Check out some images from the exhibit below.

From the spring-summer Haute Couture Collection 1949

Giovani Boldini paints Madame Charles Max, 1896.  The dress had a direct influence on Dior´s gray tulle haute couture gown from fall/winter 2005.
