The theme of a series of three lectures, held at the DI Telegraph in collaboration with the Theory and Practice project, is art in the history of the legendary fashion houses of the XX-XXI century. At the second lecture, an expert in the field of fashion and design, ex-editor of the fashion and culture sections of Vogue, Elle, Interni magazines, and now a teacher at the British Higher School of Design, Ilektra Kanestri, will talk about the Dior house.
Inspired by masterpieces of painting or the work of contemporary artists, architectural styles and historic interiors, Dior's collections showcase an absolute synthesis of fine arts, applied arts and fashion art. The founder of the legendary house, Christian Dior, often “quoted” significant objects and themes of world culture in his collections. His successors, John Galliano and Raf Simmons, interpret Dior's legacy through the prism of a modern view of art.
“The connection between fashion and art is inextricable, this tandem came to us from the twentieth century, and we pay tribute to centuries-old traditions. At the lectures we will talk about classic fashion houses, and as part of our regular project - the Korobka market - we will continue to introduce modern fashion to the world,”says Maria Uvarova, CEO of DI Telegraph.
Anna Gileva, director of public programs of the Theory and Practice project, adds: “The special project on the history of fashion houses was conceived as a rethinking of the chronicle of world famous brands.”
Tickets for the lecture can be purchased in advance on TimePad or before the event at the DI Telegraph.
