My Sewing Group yesterday went to Paris to visit the Dior Exhibition.

What an absolutely mind blowing experience. The genius of the designers and the craftsmanship of the construction and work was breathtaking. Whilst most, personally I wouldn’t or couldn’t wear, there was plenty to inspire. It also included shoes, bags, jewellery and perfume.

It’s a huge exhibition and took nearly 2 hours to get round. It covers from the Christian Dior designs, through Yves St Laurent, John Galliano, to the present with Maria Grazia Chiuri. The final room really was spectacular with audible gasps as people came in.

Well worth it.

That sounds absolutely fabulous! Maybe TSP Should plan a sewing/quilting trip sometime - or a retreat - or exhibition visit. It would be fun.

I love Dior's 'new look' as typified by



beautiful ensemble.  I think a saw a Dior exhibition a few years' ago in London, but I could be mis-remembering.

This iconic image was on display, the same thrill as seeing a famous painting. For me up there with all the great “Masters”

It would be wonderful to see this exhibition at the V&A.
