BIG at the ROM

I finally got the chance to see the BIG exhibit at the ROM. The highlight for me was getting to see the Christian Dior Spring 2011 Couture gown designed by John Galliano. The collection was an homage to artist René Gruau who created beautiful illustrations for the house in the forties and fifties. Beaded detailing and feathers on the dresses mimicked brushstrokes, while layers of tulle recreated the shading effect (dégradé) from his illustrations.
