So Dior at Harrods (and a few extra's)

I was lucky enough to have a spare 15 minutes when I was in Harrods the other day, so I of course headed straight up to the Dior exhibit.  You are transported into another world - Christian Dior's world, which started with his first collection in 1947.  True to Harrod's usual standards, it did not disappoint.  This is free, I just wanted to point out, you get to view these amazing dresses up close, read the history and watch short films all in a special cordoned off area, within the store.  If you are there it's well worth a visit and give yourself more than 15 minutes!
