a dream, and the couturier knows
it: every woman is a princess."
Have you heard of "Le Petit Theatre Dior"? I hadn't until a few days ago when I stumbled on a youtube video of the making of the "Miss Dior" dress. The Miss Dior dress was originally designed by Dior for their spring-summer haute couture collection in 1949. With a beautiful full skirt the gown is covered from bodice to hem in blossoms! What could be more beautiful? ...the miniature version of course! Le Petit Theatre Dior is an exhibition of famous Dior gowns made in miniature and displayed in beautiful animatronic scenes. I love the video showing the making of the petit Miss Dior dress. So much work into something so tiny! I decided to draw my own tribute to the Miss Dior dress with it's pretty pastels and myriad flowers. I also love the Miss Dior perfumes and the ad campaigns that go with them. I made my version of a Miss Dior floral perfume photo inspired by the incredible floral perfume ads. I hope you will watch the videos I am including of the making of two petit gowns and the Le Petit Theatre Dior exhibition. They are truly stunning!
