After making its debut in Chengdu last June, Le Petit Théâtre Dior has made its way to Beijing SKP Mall to unveil its sixty classic dresses in miniature versions, with twelve different themes. The exhibition pays homage to its first incarnation in 1945, when materials needed for full haute couture dresses were sparse, and a return to beauty and craftsmanship was much needed in war-blighted Paris. The miniature dresses, though only a third of the size of the originals, are made with the same materials and with the same tradition and precision as the signature Schuman, Muguet and Miss Dior dresses. The Miss Dior dress designed by Christian Dior in 1949 is set in the middle of a huge flower, appearing like a bud with the backdrop of perfume bottles. The Bar suit that pioneered the New Look era after 1947 is also on show with Dior’s more recent looks. Among them is the house’s A/W 12/13 pastel dresses by Raf Simon for Dior. A cherry red collection of coats and dresses are displayed inside giant Rouge Dior lipstick tubes, allowing viewers to discover the essence of Dior spirit. – Maria Mao Cui

  • Heya great blog! Does running a blog such as this require a great deal of work?
    I’ve very little expertise in programming but I had
    been hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyway, if you have any recommendations or techniques for
    new blog owners please share. I understand this is off topic however I simply needed to ask.
    Kudos!
