Hear about our current exhibition of Dior's Paris and London collections.

Christian Dior's brief but supremely influential career began with his iconic 'New Look' in 1947. He reigned supreme in Parisian fashion for ten years until his untimely death in 1957.

This unique exhibition features Paris and London couture, many outfits recently acquired by the Gallery of Costume. Stunning displays include day, cocktail and evening wear, and represent many of Dior's seminal collections.

Free, no need to book but places are limited.

Gallery of Costume is located at Platt Hall on the corner of the park on Wilmslow Road and Platt Lane in Rusholme/Fallowfield.

42, 43, 142 and 142 buses all stop outside the Gallery from the city centre.

Please note: the talk takes place on the ground floor which is fully wheelchair accessible. However some of the exhibition is on the first floor and there is no lift access.
