Another season at the FHM

We open for another year this Wednesday, March 15 with two exhibitions. In Gallery One from March 15 – July 9: Dior, 1947 – 1962. Ten dresses from the first 15 years of the House of Dior that illustrate Dior’s design perspective and savvy business skills that resulted in a leading fashion brand.

In Gallery Two from March 15 – December 17: Fashioning Canada Since 1867. Sixy-seven examples of Canadian fashions that celebrate the sesquicentennial of Canada through the history of Canadian fashion design, manufacturing, and retailing, as well as the development of a national identity.
