There’s no denying that Christian Dior has played a large role in the world of fashion, and this year the design house will be celebrating its 70th anniversary.

To commemorate the milestone, the ROM will be hosting a new exhibition featuring signature pieces from the Museum’s most prized, yet rarely seen, collections.

Presented by Holt Renfrew, Christian Dior will focus on the early designs of the world renown couturier Monsieur Christian Dior. Visitors can revel in creations made from 1947 to 1957; designs that were revolutionary and introduced soft shoulders, padded hips, and long, full skirts — a drastic change from the then-popular masculine wartime styles.

The exhibit will be on display in the ROM’s Patricia Harris Gallery of Textiles & Costume from November 25, 2017 to March 18, 2018 and will include everything from day and evening wear to grand ball gowns. The entire collection is made up of 40 designs, many of which were worn by Toronto’s socialites of the period. On top of the physical pieces, visitors can relive Dior’s rich history through contemporary film, sketches, fashion photographs, and advertisements.

Adult tickets to the exhibit will be an additional $8 on top of the regular general admission.
