Christian Dior opened the doors to its first retail boutique in Dallas at the Highland Park Village last week. The opening night honored the DMA Art Ball 2013 Committee and was hosted by Co-Chairs Jennifer Karol and Catherine Rose.

In celebration of the occasion, Dior has partnered with French fashion photographer, Patrick Demarchelier, to create an exhibition titled: Dior Couture Patrick Demarchelier. The photographs in the exhibition were taken over a two-year period and pay tribute to the collections of the House of Dior from 1947 to present day. “A fashion photographer’s job is to create dreams, but Dior Haute Couture is already a dream,” said photographer Patrick Demarchelier.

Not surprisingly, Lisa Petty and I were the first ones in the door. Also meandering in (more fashionably late) were Kersten Rettig, Bag Snob's Tina Craig, handbag designer Susie Straubmueller and Erin Matthews.

The world of Dior Haute Couture is highlighted by six emblematic themes: the Dior Line, the Dior Garden, the Dior Ateliers, the 18th Century, From Pink to Red, and the Dior Ball. Dior Couture Patrick Demarchelier focuses on these themes of the house and highlights a dress within each.

To learn more about Dior Couture Patrick Demarchelier, you can visit the exhibition at the temporary art gallery in the Highland Park Village from March 22nd-April 19th.
