Work celebrating the life of famed designer will be on show for a further seven weeks
The V&A has announced it is to extend its landmark fashion exhibition, Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams, by seven weeks after it sold out within 19 days of opening. Originally scheduled to finish on 14 July, it will now run until 1 September.
“We knew that [the exhibition] would be popular, but we have been overwhelmed by the phenomenal visitor response to-date,” said Tristram Hunt, director of the V&A, which has so far recorded 121,566 visitors to the exhibition. “I am delighted that we can extend the run, ensuring that as many people as possible have the chance to see it before it closes.”
