Doha has practically transformed into a fashion capital this past week, and by the looks of it—it’s going to stay that way for a while. From now until March 31 in the glossy gulf capital, Christian Dior’s latest exhibition, titled Designer of Dreams, is currently being held at the M7 cultural center in Downtown Doha.
First of its kind to take place in the region, the Paris-based fashion house is finally giving birth to a Middle Eastern rendition of its famed worldwide series of global installations. The show has been displayed on almost all four corners of the globe through Paris to London, Shanghai and New York.
“The exhibition Christian Dior Designer of Dreams has captivated audiences around the globe with its stunning design and breathtaking fashion creations. Qatar Museums is pleased to present a special presentation of the exhibition in Doha, in collaboration with Dior and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs. Qatar Museums gives special thanks to Place Vendôme for their generous support as the presenting sponsor of the exhibition,” said Sheikha Al Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, Chairperson, Qatar Museums.
Specifically designed and tailored to cater to the Qatari audience, the showcase is so exclusive that it in fact includes rare pieces directly sourced from Sheikha Moza bint Nasser’s private collection. She is known for being a long-standing client of Christian Dior’s couture.
Under the patronage of French curator Olivier Gabet, the expo is punctuated by a scenographic narrative imagined by Nathalie Crinière and aims at celebrating the luxury label’s long history in the business. Plucked from Dior’s own archives as well as from the museum of decorative arts in Paris, the collection spotlights some of the signature brands’ most beautifully detailed dresses and garments while providing some stunning looks for Qatar to enjoy for the next couple of months only.
