Dior is getting its first major fashion retrospective in the U.S., and it's opening this November at the Denver Art Museum (DAM).

The immersive exhibition will highlight the incredible history of the couturier, as well as its list of artistic directors over time, including Yves-Saint Laurent, John Galliano, Raf Simons, and and now Maria Grazia Chiuriri. "Dior: From Paris to the World will also highlight North and South American patrons’ vital role in helping establish the House of Dior’s global presence," the museum said in a statement.

Visitors can expect to see everything including 150 haute couture dresses, accessories, archival materials, sketches, videos, and Dior's iconic work with Hollywood's most famous faces.

Here, we have a sneak peek at what to expect from the exhibit, which opens its doors on November 19 in Denver, CO. Tickets are not yet on sale.
