The exhibition begins with the story of Christian Dior‘s earlier days: his childhood in Granville, and the time when he discovered the avant-garde art world and Parisian entertainment in the Roaring Twenties. Before fashion, he ran an art gallery – which was depicted through a series of paintings, sculptures and documents! Drawing through all sorts of source of inspiration, it defined his aesthetic for couture house and designs.
