'Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams' to open at the V&A

The much anticipated exhibition charting the life and work of the fashion designer Christian Dior is about to open at the V&A.

Spanning 11 rooms at the South Kensington museum it is the UK's largest ever showcase dedicated to the French fashion powerhouse.

Among the highlights - a ball gown worn by the Queen's sister, Princess Margaret on her 21st birthday, and arguably the brand's most recognisable outfit.

'Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams' runs at the V&A from Saturday 2nd February - 14th July.
