To highlight the passion Christian Dior possessed for flowers and gardens, one which has proved a constant inspiration for the House’s creations, a blizzard of paper flowers was installed like a hanging garden by the artists Wanda. Spilling from the ceiling, they bloom surrounded by floral dresses from Christian Dior and his successors right up to Maria Grazia Chiuri, and among artworks by Claude Monet and Marc Quinn.
