MINI-EXHIBITION FESTIVAL MODE + DESIGN X MCCORD MUSEUM
Information on the activity
From August 19 to 22, 2021.
Go behind the scenes of haute couture through the ephemeral exhibition “Dior, From Sketches to Dresses,” presented by the McCord Museum as part of the 21st edition of the Fashion & Design Festival.
Immerse yourself in the process of creating evening gowns, made in the grand tradition of haute couture by Montreal fashion designer Helmer Joseph, using original House of Dior patterns. This project in conjunction with the exhibition “Christian Dior” is the perfect opportunity not only to bring to the forefront a highly specialized skill set, but also to show the ingenuity that shaped the golden age of haute couture!
This presentation was made possible thanks to the generous support of Pascale Bourbeau, Bita Cattelan and Patricia Saputo.
The project is part of the Christian Dior exhibition, produced by the Royal Ontario Museum and presented by Holt Renfrew Ogilvy.
