After a stampede for tickets and general fashionista frenzy, the organisers of Dior: Designer of Dreams at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London have announced plans to extend the exhibition honouring the late French fashion designer. All pre-bookable tickets for the homage in London have sold out, making the exhibition one of the V&A’s most successful and lucrative shows ever. The exhibition, originally scheduled to run until 14 July 2019, will now be extended by seven weeks to 1 September with additional tickets now on sale through the V&A’s website. To date, a whopping 121,566 visitors have visited the exhibition since it opened on 2 February. "The V&A has a history of staging revelatory fashion exhibitions, and there is always a hugely engaged audience for these," says the V&A director, Tristram Hunt (we assume the gift shop is also doing handsomely).
