Visiting the Dior boutique on Queen Street is an experience in itself, the theme of the decor is Versaille with different shades of grey and silver the background to the luminous designs beautifully displayed everywhere you look.
When trying on clothes at Dior you are treated to a dressing room with a difference. Once the doors are closed behind you it feels like you're standing in Dior's Parisian living room surrounded by mirrors and complete with views of the Versaille gardens.
Shopping with Dior easily trumps your routine shopping experiences, as acquiring a piece of Dior fashion means you are receiving a timeless work of art which is now part of a long fashion lineage with origins reaching back to the 1940s.
Although Dior as a brand has consistently supplied women and men around the world with clothing, shoes, accessories and all manners of fashion that are elegant and dripping with luxury, the theme of the House of Dior is renewal, revitalisation and revolution.
