It took 18 months to put together, with the creators putting their hearts and souls into showcasing the House of Dior’s history and fashion highlights. The exhibition tells the history behind the fashion house, including the love Christian Dior had for flowers and how the well-known perfume ‘Miss Dior’ came about.
