It was our good fortune to be in Paris at the same time as the various exhibitions featured in my previous posts. And our luck continued – at the Museé des Arts Decoratifs, we were able to see their current tribute to the ‘Couturier of Dreams’, Christian Dior.
Oh my word, what an amazing exhibition this was. Room after room of the most gorgeous dresses and accessories, all meticulously colour-coded and immaculately presented:
Some fun pieces…:
Some beautiful period pieces – just look at all that gorgeous embroidery (click images for a closer look):

What an incredible way to finish off this most memorable of trips. 🙂
