Katie Somerville - Delightful Dior

From Saturday Morning, 9:09 am on 15 July 2017

Katie Somerville is the Senior Fashion and Textiles Curator at the National Gallery of Victoria, and has spent the last three years pulling together the stunning House of Dior exhibition that opens at the NGV in August. Her job has been to source the garments, collating their fascinating stories, and understanding the unique history behind each piece - a task that has required frequent trips abroad and late night calls to Paris. She has been in a fashion and textiles curatorial role with the NGV since 1995.
