The Denver Art Museum's popular Dior exhibit, a stunning tour through the work of the fashion house's seven directors — Christian Dior himself, Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons and Maria Grazia Chiuri — has been extended by two weeks.
The exhibit will now close on March 17.
Dior: From Paris to the World has been selling out on the weekends, and visitors have been practically elbowing each other as they make their way through the galleries to take in the more than 200 dresses, countless accessories, fashion photographs and letters written between customers and designers. So it's no surprise the museum has decided to extend the show.
See it for yourself at the DAM, at 100 West 14th Avenue; for more information and tickets, $24, go to the Denver Art Museum website.
