Monday Moments

A Monday moment after a Sunday at the Dallas Museum of Art. The featured exhibit is Dior: From Paris to the World. 

This is a wow showing of haute couture. Christian Dior founded his fashion house in 1947 and brought an elegance to a world still reeling from war. He died in 1957, but his work lived on  with designers appointed to continue his vision - Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferre, John Galliano, Raf Simons, and now Maria Grazia Chiuri. All stayed true to the Dior image and legacy "to make women happier and more beautiful.

Yes, there are some crazy designs, but the structure, detail, and seamstress skill is astounding.

Really cool exhibit.
