Event: Opening of Dior Backstage Studio at Orchard Ion

How can you tell when a brand is major luxe? It’s when you arrive on the dot but it’s already teeming with people, which swells to a crowd of more than a hundred. It was the first time I ever found myself perspiring in the cold of a department store. Such is the allure of Dior. hohoho.

On Friday, they opened their first Dior Backstage Studio in Southeast Asia at Orchard Ion. I’ll be mixing some of my photo with the photos they provided, because it was simply too crowded to take any decent photos. The ones without the watermarks are provided by the brand 😀

Dior Backstage at ION 124Now this may seem to be all there is, but do you see the light at the end of the tunnel, literally? That white portion? That leads to the second portion of the store.  This area is the part that’s supposed to emulate the backstage of any fashion show

Dior Backstage at Ion (7)I find this really interesting – tiny little crystal funnel-things with a ceramic centre. This is for spray products (the funnel shape is to catch the spray) and the ceramic is better for fragrance diffusion.
