Christian Dior Book Launch & Lecture

February 4, 7pm

Join Dr. Alexandra Palmer, curator of the exhibition Christian Dior and award-winning author of two fashion-focused books, as she launches her third title, Christian Dior: History and Modernity 1947-1957.

Dr Palmer will share her expertise through a discerning lecture about Dior and her research, followed by a book signing.

Christian Dior: History and Modernity 1947-1957 will be available for purchase at the event.
