Bal de printemps and Colinette
Haute Couture special creation, 1956
The relationship between the Princess and the House strengthened after the arrival of Marc Bohan. The delicate nature, harmony and measure that characterised the creations of Marc Bohan resonated with her personal style. Princess Grace put together a carefully crafted Dior wardrobe, based on the sketches the House sent her and the advice provided by Agnès, her personal shopper.
In 2019, an exhibition at the Christian Dior museum in Granville, Normandy, paid tribute to the Princess and her relationship with the House. Eighty-five designs from Grace’s personal wardrobe, kept by the Prince's Palace of Monaco, were exceptionally lent for the occasion.
