Dior: Fashion brand honoured in UK

    A top fashion label is in the limelight at a new exhibition in the United Kingdom.

    It looks at how Christian Dior became one of the most influential designers of the 20th century.

    Both he and his subsequent artistic directors worked to adapt the Dior vision to the times and to remain relevant, passionate and luxurious.
