Dior Cruise Fashion Show at Blenheim Palace for two
Christian Dior is going back to the site of one of its earliest shows, revealing the Spring/Summer 2017 cruise collection in Blenheim Palace on 31st May 2016. Blenheim Palace – a stately home in Oxfordshire that is traditionally the principal residence of the Duke of Marlborough – first played host to Christian Dior himself in 1954, when the designer was invited but the then-Duchess of Marlborough to present his latest couture offering there. Dior took more than 100 pieces from his Winter collection to the palace, and showed them on models in the style of a salon show to a group said to have been made up of more than 1,500 women – including Princess Margaret. A collection buy the house of Dior returned to the building in 1958, a year after the founder’s untimely death, by then created by Yves Saint Laurent and his team.
