Starting to feel a little blue from weeks on end of isolation? Finding it hard to keep yourself entertained? Time to lose yourself in a bit of escapism and wonder with Christian Dior's Designer of Dreams exhibition.
Originally showcased at the Musée Décoratifs in Paris from July 5, 2017 to January 7, 2018 the exhibition celebrates the iconic fashion house's 70th anniversary across a display area of over 3000 square meters, which saw over half a million people walking through its doors when it was open to the public.
Now, fashionistas can explore the exhibition (virtually) from the comforts of their home - thanks to social media.
