Following the launch of a podcast, an online tour of Christian Dior, Designer of Dreams (AKA the greatest Dior exhibition of all time), the house of Dior is now offering us the extremely rare opportunity to peek into the world of Monsieur Dior himself in a documentary, now available to stream online.
“Couturiers embody one of the last refuges of the marvellous. They are, in a way, masters of dreams,” stated Christian Dior in his autobiography.
With his passion, talent and visionary spirit, the legendary couturier conjured up a revolution in the world of fashion in 1947, as he transformed his dreams into irresistible creations — dubbed the New Look — that gracefully enhanced the beauty of women around the world.
The house of Dior is offering us the rare opportunity to (re)discover this legendary story with us, as they present to the world Haute Couture, a Christian Dior documentary directed by French filmmaker Henri A. Lavorel. The archive video, narrated by the Christian Dior himself, will take us behind the scenes to witness the couturier in action as he brings the Fall/Winter 1949 haute couture collection to life.
Set to premiere tonight at 4pm Paris time (10pm, Hong Kong time), tune into the 1949 documentary with us below and learn more about Christian Dior’s dreams and visions, as well as the secrets of 30 Avenue Montaigne.
