to exhibit all of the dream-like dresses influenced by flowers and gardens, Dior commissioned wanda barcelona to create a mesmerizing garden – ‘les invasions’ – made entirely of paper. enormous hanging wisteria wines, impressive climbing clematis donning 4,500 flowers, extensive colonies of lily of the valley and thousands of creeping jennies are suspended elegantly over the dresses. an entire room is dedicated to Miss Dior, packed with luxuriant rose bushes blooming with more than 5,000 roses – all handmade by ten people in downtown barcelona over a period of four months.
