Back in February of 2020, Shakera attended the highly anticipated Dior exhibition – ‘Christian Dior Designer of Dreams’ – at the Victoria Albert museum.

The exhibition displayed over 200 rare Haute Couture garments from the V&A's couture collection and Dior Archives alongside accessories, fashion photography, film, vintage perfume, original make-up, illustrations, magazines, and Christian Dior’s personal possessions.

Below are some of Shakera’s highlights:
