Before we get into the lowdown on the free-booze-infused, no-rsvp-needed, Dior-themed shindig on Thursday, here’s some brief but essential context for all you youngsters: The ultra-feminine silhouettes that embodied Dior's "New Look" collection (think voluminous skirts and nipped-in waists), pushed the proverbial envelope and helped wartime womenswear firmly move away from solemn, boxy cuts and modest shapes. Needless to say, in 1947, Christian Dior completely rocked the world.
What does that mean exactly? While we're not entirely sure, we know you can expect Dior’s iconic New Look photos on display and left largely intact, in addition to a bevy of real models mimicking the iconic poses of the ladies in said photos.
Ready to stroll down one of fashion’s most seminal forks on memory lane? Us, too. Plus, free treats, live music, and cocktails will be provided. All you need to do is show up in your Dior-inspired best.
