It doesn’t matter if you are a diehard fashion aficionado or just someone who has a fleeting interest, the latest exhibition at the V&A in London transcends all categories with a stunning new collection devoted to the legendary Christian Dior.

The Victoria and Albert museum has held countless exhibitions dedicated to some of the world’s most iconic and revered designers. From Frida Kahlo: Making Herself Up to Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty Displays, the V&A has always been one of the largest cultural hubs for fashion and design.

This year’s is no different with a new exhibition dedicated to the French designer, Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams.

From the likes of Princess Margaret’s 21st birthday dress to Rihanna’s iconic Cannes Film Festive look, limited Miss Dior perfume bottles and original Dior sketches, the new exhibition has something for everyone to enjoy.
