Le Rouge Dior

With the illuminations in Omotesando returning after 11 years, the city has instantly increased more glamour in the streets. Standing out among all the glittering lights is Dior, illuminated in red lights. Christian Dior has always valued color, and at Dior Omotesando, events featuring "rouge" are going to be held until December 26.

On the fourth floor is the Haute Couture Exhibition. Though it's a small exhibition with 12 dresses, dresses designed by Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, and John Galliano show the history of the fashion house.

The main dress, without question, is this 2004/05 Autumn Winter Dress by John Galliano:


On the third floor is the Dior Studio, where a professional make-up artist will create a look using the Dior rouge lipstick. This actually turned out to be a full make-up session starting with foundation all the way to mascara. The make-up artist was amazing, and after the make-up, you can get your photo taken holding a Dior bag. This event is only held on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays until December 26, so if you have the chance, go! Getting make-up done for free at Dior is rare and a great experience.

Unfortunately buying anything Dior is far far away for me...but these events are a nice way to get to know the brand a little more and to feel it and see it yourself.
