Not many Monday mornings start like this, but what a pleasure to interview the fabulous Oriole Cullen, curator of Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams at the Women’s Irish Network breakfast bright and early today. #oriolecullen @winwomenuk #irishinlondon
  • ✨Funny, articulate and extremely down to earth - it was a pleasure to hear Oriole Cullen’s journey to become the curator of Dior’s Designer of Dreams exhibition at @V_and_A and learn about her view of the art & design world today.
“The world is in tumultuous times. 
The title of the show [Designer of Dreams] represented escapism, because Dior became a representative of a new world after the hardships of war. His story is a very positive one.” Oriole Cullen at our #BusinessBreakfast.
A special thank you to all the new people who joined our event today, and the renowned Orla Kiely who is a great supporter and @marieclairetrish who interviews Oriole- it was a full house of 70 at @CorriganMayfair and it was a pleasure to meet you all!
