Dior Built a Huge Flower Wall for Its Show

Fashion show producer Alex de Betak has lent his talents to dozens of dramatic sets over the years, from Rodarte’s mesh and neon wonderland this season to Viktor & Rolf’s museum-inspired couture outing. Today, as you can see on Bureau Betak’s Instagram, he blanketed the Cour Carrée du Louvre in delphiniums* in preparation for Dior’s spring 2016 show at Paris Fashion Week. The house and its designer Raf Simons are clearly botanical enthusiasts; you may remember that his fall 2014 couture show featured a backdrop of 150,000 orchids, and his debut show involved one million fresh flowers. Whatever we can expect from the show, at least we know one thing: It will smell amazing.

*This posted has been corrected to show that the flowers were delphiniums, not lavendar.
