Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams

 


In London, the Victoria and Albert Museum is the world’s leading museum of art, design and performance. Objects span over 5,000 years of human creativity with resources for the study of architecture, furniture, fashion, textiles, photography, sculpture, Asian art, theater and performance.

Our team went to the Christian Dior exhibit which spans from 1947 to the present, and Dior was one of the most influential couturiers of the 20thcentury with an influential fashion house.

Dior’s sketches were absolutely elegant and he stated “I think of my work as ephemeral architecture, dedicated to the beauty of the female body”. Anchored by the curves of a woman’s figure Dior’s designs played with structure and proportion to create clothes that powerfully expressed attitude!!!

Stay stylish,

Spring Equinox

While retrieving the newspaper early this morning, one couldn’t help noticing that winter is not backing down, it’s definitely holding on. As we are going to have cloud cover this evening the last supermoon of 2019 will be difficult to view. This full moon will coincide with the spring equinox reaching the closest point to Earth in it’s elliptical orbit around the planet, and appearing larger and brighter in the night sky.

Two of the photos were taken at 8:30 last night {Tuesday, March 19th], the moon reached its closest point to Earth at 3:47 pm but, will not be completely full until tonight. The equinox arrives at 5:58 pm tonight so, those of you who can get out to see this show please relay what you observe. Hopefully, our cloud cover will not take place until tomorrow morning!!!

Happy spring.
