Here are some fashion-centric exhibitions that have made the jump from museum hall to digital device
The pandemic has, of course, changed how the fashion industry operates. With malls having to cease operations and deliveries being put on hold, sales have dipped significantly. A good number of fashion houses have also shifted focus, addressing the shortage of Personal Protective Equipment by producing this now precious gear for frontliners in need. Museums, too, have had to close their doors, putting a temporary halt on displays and shows. And so these industries have embraced the digital platform, making some exhibitions available to view for free online.
Held at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris from July 2017 to January 2018, this exhibition highlights the evolution of Dior at the hands of its creative directors: from Christian Dior to Maria Grazia Chiuri. Through iconic haute couture dresses, accessories, archival photographs, sketches, and other precious objects, audiences are taken on a journey—though virtual, this time—that spans over 70 years of creativity and daring.
