wanderlust: christian dior: 70 years of haute couture

Just couple of weeks before I left for London (first then a brief trip to Paris), I came across news of Christian Dior exhibition at Musée des Arts Décoratifs; commemorating 70th anniversary of the creation of the House of Dior. I was super excited and could not wait to buy a ticket online (highly recommend to buy ticket online to avoid very, very long queue however the site is in French). 

The exhibition takes you on a magical journey into the world of House of Dior from Christian Dior, himself to his fellow successors; Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons and Maria Grazia Chiuri. Get a little up close and personal with hundreds of lovely dresses. An exhibition not to be missed!
