Paris Diaries III
Paris is one of the most beautiful cities on earth, overflowing with inspiration on every corner you turn. My second time going to Paris was a breeze, no complications unlike the first time. On this occasion, the main purpose for my trip was to see the Christian Dior exhibition. Dior is one of my favourite fashion designers, and it's always been a dream to visit his home which has now turned into a museum in Normandy North of France. The moment I heard that there was a exhibition showing in Paris, I booked my ticket straight away as I knew the queue was going to be busy, and it was, the non ticket queue was a 2hr hour wait and the ticket holder queue was 5mins. So I'm glad I bought my ticket in advanced.
Stepping into the exhibition felt somewhat like a fairy tale, everything was pretty and floral which sums up Dior in those two words. Growing up in Normandy and being surrounded by nature a lot of Dior's work was inspired by the impressionism art movement. One of my favourite rooms was the sample room, a room filled with white toiles, (the word toile comes from the French which can means linen cloth, the same word is used to describe a garment for a sample test) which reminded me of the Dior exhibition that took place in Harrods department store a few years back. One thing that I love about Dior is the detail in every single piece. The link between impression art shows elegance, nature and art throughout his work, each piece is a work of art in my eyes.
