New York City and Los Angeles may have more cachet than Denver when it comes to posh clothing, yet it’s the Denver Art Museum that has the honor of hosting the Western Hemisphere’s first retrospective of legendary French fashion company House of Dior. (You can thank the museum’s contemporary design, which fits the exhibit’s avant-garde aesthetic, for the privilege.) Dior: From Paris to the World will examine the brand’s seven-decade history through more than 170 couture dresses, oodles of rare accessories, and years of archival footage, all of which detail iconic moments in fashion history. Christian Dior, for example, was the first designer known for pieces that emphasized female silhouettes instead of hiding them.
