Invitation to "LE GRAND BAL".
Christian Dior museum and garden in Granville, France.
The Christian Dior Museum in Granville will for the first time ever bring together over 50 Dior ball gowns for the new exhibition “The Dior Grand Ball”, from May 13 to September 26, 2010.
This remarkable new exhibition places the universe and creations of Chris- tian Dior—haute couture, accessories and fragrances from the House of Dior, plus paintings, photographs, archive films and literary works—in a unique context: the history of balls, from the 18th century to the present. The exhibition is a tribute to Christian Dior himself, showcasing his talent and refinement, and his love of sumptuous costumes, expressed in creations for the grand balls of the post-war period.
