Rene Gruau

Somerset House is showing the work of René Gruau, who created some of the most iconic fashion images and illustrations of the 20th century.

Original illustrations for Christian Dior Parfums, vintage perfume bottles, sketches and magazines, as well as a selection of Dior Haute Couture dresses, personally chosen by John Galliano, including a special dress designed by Galliano himself, in homage to Gruau.

René Gruau’s bold lines and fluid style were perfectly in tune with the spirit of Dior, capturing the energy, elegance and audacity of the brand.
