Avenir Museum hosts a special event: A Day in Denver – Feb. 16

Mannequins wear clothing inspired by Dior's new look.
Far from the boulevards of Paris, the Avenir Exhibit explores how the everyday American woman aspired to achieve Dior’s ‘New Look’.

Join Avenir Museum staff and fellow fashion aficionados for an exclusive bus trip from Fort Collins to Denver to see the exhibition Dior: From Paris to the World at the Denver Art Museum. Then, enjoy a late afternoon reception at the downtown CSU Denver Center, where you’ll see CSU students’ fashion design work inspired by the classic Christian Dior silhouette.

French couturier Christian Dior (1905-1957) was one of the most influential fashion designers of the twentieth century. His ‘New Look’ debuted in 1947; its feminine silhouette and voluminous fabric yardages quickly seduced post-World War II style setters.
