Sneak Peek: Dior's Harrods invasion from exhibition to retail therapy
For those of you unfamiliar with Dior's rich and lengthy history with the UK, this exhibition will be an eye opener. From royal followers, including the Duchess of Windsor and, of course, Princess Diana, to a look back at the very first store opened by Christian Dior in the UK, this exhibition on the fourth floor feels more like a time machine than an actual space at Harrods. While I am tempted to go on and on about every detail I discovered, I feel as if I would be doing you a great disservice in revealing all that I encountered. This is a display best taken in with your own eyes and you'll be glad you made the trek.
Should you require a retail incentive for visiting the Dior Harrods transformation, rest assured there are plenty of mementos to take home with you from cupcakes to carrier bags. There are even Dior Harrods teddy bears and exclusive Dior makeup designed purely for this grand event.
Here's a little look into what you'll discover at Harrods from tomorrow. It's a Dior journey you won't soon forget.
