As promised, a recap of the ATOP summer event, A Day of Dior, and in case you missed it; how to create your own Day of Dior.
I had 2, sold-out events, both on Friday’s in July. We met at the Dallas Museum of Art and begin our day together.
The exhibit Dior from Paris to the World, is a feast for the eyes. Each room, more beautiful than the last.
I had seen the exhibit in Paris more than 2 years ago and was moved deeply by it. The Dallas exhibit is very different than the one in Paris. One of the unique features of the Dallas exhibit is the inclusion of artwork in many of the rooms. Seven pieces of artwork that are part of the permanent DMA collection, and 2 that are borrowed, are incorporated in the exhibit. The artwork, like Monet’s “Water Lilies” seen here, help to create a particular mood in each room.
The painting called “The Abduction of Europa” by Jean Baptiste Marie Pierre, along with the Dior gowns, created a dream-like experience.
Next, a delicious lunch at Bistro 31.
Good food and…
And finally, to the Dior boutique for stories about classic products at Dior. Learning the history and back ground of this iconic brand was definitely the highlight of the day.
Champagne and sweets in the salon made it very special too!
And the day was capped off with treat bags given to each guest of A Taste of Paris. A good time was had by all!
I am thrilled to share that A Taste of Paris will be offering quarterly, French Inspired events. After the success of the first event, A Day of Dior, I am more convinced than ever that YOU want events like this!
