The Denver Art Museum presents the first major US retrospective of the highly anticipated exhibit “Dior: From Paris to the World.”

The town is buzzing about the world-class Dior exhibit which showcases 70 years of the House of Dior’s enduring legacy and its global influence. A selection of more than 170 couture dresses, as well as accessories, costume jewelry, photographs, drawings, runway videos, and other archival material, trace the history of the iconic haute couture fashion house, its founder, Christian Dior, and the subsequent artistic directors who carried Dior’s vision into the 21st Century.

Dior imbued his designs with modern femininity, featuring luxurious fabrics, revolutionary design and lavish embroidery. Among his more notable clients were Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth and Elizabeth Taylor.

In honor of the DAM’s exhibition, Denver’s chicest hotels are offering Dior-inspired packages perfect for visitors in town just for the exhibit, or for fashion-lovers looking for the perfect fashion-forward staycation. Here are some of the special offers for the Dior-lover in all of us!

The Ramble Hotel

Chauffeur to Dior: From Paris to the World

Celebrate the Denver Art Museum’s highly anticipated exhibit, “Dior: From Paris to the World,” with a night at The Ramble Hotel, recently named one of the nation’s “top 18 new hotels in 2018” by Architectural Digest. With its ‘’Chauffeur to Dior: From Paris to the World’’ package, The Ramble Hotel invites guests into its doors for a night of vintage-inspired joie de vivre. Those who book the package will enjoy:

  • Lodging for two at The Ramble Hotel.
  • A private, Dior shopping experience in-room, presented by vintage jewelry curator extraordinaire, Dan Sharp. Guests have the opportunity to purchase from a collection of vintage, one-of-a-kind, signed Dior jewelry pieces curated personally from Sharp’s travels to Paris, and accessorize with the designer’s baubles for the night at the museum, and beyond.
  • A selection of Dior perfume and cologne displayed for guests’ use in their suite’s in-bathroom vanity.
  • Two specialty “Ginette” cocktails in the hotel’s grand lobby, prior to departing for the Museum. Named as a nod to Christian Dior’s beloved sister, Mademoiselle Catherine Dior’s given name, the Ginette cocktail was created by the world-renowned Death & Co. Using the unique notes of the Miss Dior scent (for which Catherine Dior was the muse), the cocktail is gin-based, accented with crème de rose, sherry, grapefruit and jasmine aroma and served in a vintage glass alongside a perfume atomizer for garnish.
  • Two VIP front-of-line tickets to the Denver Art Museum and “Dior: From Paris to the World”.
  • Chauffeur service in a vintage Rolls Royce for four hours, transporting guests to and from the exhibit, dinner, etc.

The Ramble Hotel, which recently opened this past May as the first hotel in Denver’s artistic and industrial RiNo neighborhood, takes inspiration from French salons of the 17th century; its name is a nod to Catherine de Vivonne, Marquise de Rambouillet, a renowned salon host known for her egalitarian gatherings in which participants from all walks of life, who held sincere and passionate ideas and a love of good conversation, were welcomed.

Package starts at $1,219, based on double occupancy. Bookable through March 3, 2019 at www.theramblehotel.com and based on availability. Shopping experience is included, but any jewelry purchases are an additional retail cost.
