Dior Dior Dior, how do you like it, how do you like it...

Well, the public liked the V&A's Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams exhibition plenty. So much so, that the sell-out show, charting the legacy of the French fashion designer, has now extended its run by seven weeks. It'll now close on Sunday 1 September.

Throughout the extended run, the V&A will release additional exhibition tickets on the 15th of each month, for the month ahead, via its website. The first new batch is now on sale.

Already, 121,566 visitors have flocked to see Designer of Dreams, which opened on 2 February 2019. All pre-bookable tickets for the initial five months sold out within 19 days of opening

Seeing as we praised the show as a "truly jaw-dropping exhibition", lavishing it with ★★★★★, we'd seriously recommend you snap up a bonus ticket when you can.

Designer of Dreams is set to be one of the V&A's most successful blockbusters, up there with Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty (480,000 tickets sold) and David Bowie Is (311,956).

A limited number of tickets are available to purchase daily at 10am from the V&A’s Grand Entrance on a first-come, first-served basis.
