After a stop in Chengdu in China, Le Théâtre Dior has now opened the Dubai Mall, from 9 to 24 November. An homage to French haute couture, Le Petit Théâtre de la Mode featured in miniature form, the creations by the greatest couturiers of the period. Christian Dior, then working at Lucien Lelong, was the project's originator, and working with him were his friends Christian Bérard and Jean Cocteau, who assisted with the staging and the sets.
Today, paying homage to the 1945 project, Le Petit Théâtre Dior sets off on a world tour. Twelve installations retrace the history of the House. Minutely sewn to the millimeter, they resemble the originals down to the tiniest detail.
