Oh, y’all… I CANNOT wait for this! I wish I didn’t receive email updates on The Frist’s exhibitions so far in advance.
The Golden Age Of Couture
Paris and London 1947-1957
June 18–September 12, 2010
The launch of Christian Dior’s “New Look” in 1947 marked the beginning of a momentous decade in fashion history, which Dior himself called a “golden age.” The couture houses of Paris and London, which had traditionally served wealthy private clients, opened boutiques and licensed their designs, thereby becoming global brands and household names. Through clothing (primarily evening dresses and suits), shoes, and photographs, this exhibition demonstrates how designers such as Dior, Balenciaga, and Chanel brought glamour back to Europe after World War II.
