    So many words come to mind, stunning, exquisite, regal, artistic, and none are adequate to describe the Dior exhibit. Thank you for sharing so many photos.

    Thank you Linda for this. I had marked this as something to see when I am in Paris in December/January. Now I am really looking forward to going to see this exhibition. Just as a side note, my mother was a dressmaker and worked for an Australian dress designer in the 1930s. She made most of my clothes and she was very adept at copying the French designers clothes. I loved that I always wore the latest fashions when I was young.

    REally love the clothes. Shirtwaist dresses were the rage for country girls from Sand Mountain,
    And before children, I had a waist to wear them.
    Take care …thank you again.

    Of course Bernie enjoyed it, what a great place to meet chics. The picture which showed your reflection off to side was a keeper. The imagination that allows that some folks to come up with exhibits like this is unreal.

      Yes, the whole experience was like a dream, well-named.

    I am a friend of John & Sharon, living in Tucson. Sharon was talking about your blog and shared with me that site so I might be able to view Paris through your eyes. I’m excited to see what you experience while you are there.

      Enchanté, Gloria! Means “nice to meet you” in French. If you go to my web site, there is a place in the menu called BLOGS and it will allow you to see the history of everything I’ve posted. Are you the friend who is thinking of coming to Paris next year with Sharon & Johnny?
