Curator-Led Tour of Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams at the Brooklyn Museum

On September 30, 2021 the AFA membership toured Christion Dior: Designer of Dreams with Matthew Yokobosky, Senior Curator of Fashion and Material Culture at the Brooklyn Museum.

With objects drawn primarily from the Dior archives, the exhibition includes a vast array of over two hundred haute couture garments as well as photographs, archival videos, sketches, vintage perfume elements, accessories, and works from the Museum’s collection. The haute couture on view exemplifies many of the French couturier’s fabled silhouettes, including the “New Look,” which debuted in 1947.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, capacity for this tour is extremely limited.
