What a feast for the sense!

Stay tuned for the full recap of the event coming next Tuesday with plenty of photos and a how-to create YOUR own day of Dior!

A huge part of the joy in putting this event together was crafting an amazing SWAG bag for each guest and I’d like to share it with you now!

Dior goodies

All kinds of goodies from Dior  Beauty were included in the gift bags along with a gorgeous Dior fall look book.

Lombardi gift cards and pop champagne.

Gift cards for Lombardi Group, one of my all-time favorite restaurant brands were given as well as POP Pink champagne splits, perfect for a girly touch.

The little dictionary of fashion by Christian Dior

This pretty Little Fashion Dictionary by Christian Dior was a true throw-back and a must for any Dior event.

6-pack of mini cupcakes from Bird bakery.

Nothing cures a sweet craving quite like a 6-pack of mini cupcakes from Bird Bakery and when they are inspired by Dior, well, they are extra tasty!

Kiehls 2

Kiehl’s, the luxury skin care line, got in on the action too, and shared these lovely gifts with participants.

I take great delight in retracing Christian Dior’s footsteps as I head out with my Paris groups, we pass this address on our way to the morning train.

Dior 1947-1957

Dior was convinced that people were ready for something new after many years of war and in 1947, he debuted the New Look; a silhouette that would define the 1950’s.

Dior day suit with black skirt and white jacket and hat

This New Look with its narrow shoulders, accentuated bust, nipped waist with a wide flared “flower” skirt exudes femininity and despite the lack of practicality, people loved it.

White Dior gown with red velvet ribbon and ivy

Dior employed the very finest tailors and used the most sumptuous fabrics money could buy.

Diors fabric swatches and drawings

He understood the importance of catering to starlets and the press that would ultimately follow; after all he was making more than dresses, he was building a brand.

An assortment of white and cream Dior gowns.

Dior was the first to licences his name for other products like make-up and perfume.  The name Dior was and still is synonymous with luxury.

Dior- From Paris to the World

I spent a few hours at the Louvre several years ago exploring the incredible world of Dior at the world acclaimed exhibit that broke all attendance records.  When I returned to the Dallas area, I visited the Dior store at Highland Park Village, they were all a buzz with the news that the Dior exhibit would, eventfully make its way to Dallas! After waiting more than 2 years the magnificent exhibit has finally arrived.
