"How to Dior. Christian Dior and his successors" 

The website was created as part of a two-semester university cooperation between the Macromedia University of Applied Sciences and the Berlin Museum of Decorative Arts in 2021. It is designed as a media extension of the special exhibition "How to Dior. Christian Dior and his Successors" in the Fashion Cabinet of the Museum of Decorative Arts. The collaboration was led by Prof. Karolin Violante (Professor of Fashion Design at Macromedia University / Atelier Chardon Savard) and Dr. Katrin Lindemann (Curator of the Museum of Decorative Arts Berlin). The cooperation involved 122 students from the university under the direction of 10 professors from 4 courses of study. In addition to the Fashion Design B.A. program, this included the Fashion Management (B.A.), Communication Design (B.A.) and Acting B.A. programs. Over 100 student works became part of the exhibition as fashion exhibits or as elements of exhibition scenography and communication.
