This glittering, spectacular exhibition of couture dresses, sketches, films and perfumes is a golden opportunity to get inspiration for evening gowns you will never wear to fancy balls you will never be invited to. But it’s nice to dream right? From a magnificent dress Princess Margaret wore at her 21st to the iconic New Look silhouette which sent shockwaves through post-war rationing Europe, this show looks back at the storied history of the mega-watt fashion house with meters upon meters of silk and more pleats than you’ll know what to do with. Sure, it kinda glosses over some of the John Galliano years to avoid that thorny anti-semitic rant of his, but Dior is not a brand that deals in matters of stark reality - it’s all about enormous tulle skirts, cinched waists and pastel coloured fantasy, so indulge. Estimated dwell time: 1 hour 30 mins
