Maria Grazia Chiuri debuted as the creative director of Dior with a breathtaking haute couture show. Since the beginning of the label’s creation, Dior has been a synonym of sophistication, class and fairy tales and that is exactly what Chiuri delivered. The gardens of the Musée Rodin were the chosen venue where fantasy became reality, and where every single gown made each model become the epitome of a nymph.
The catwalk which was shaped like a labyrinth, was a metaphor for her own life and career, especially after leaving Valentino and settling down at Dior. Chiuri successfully recreated the Dior look and gave it a new breath of life. There were peplums, volumes in sleeves, tulle, capes, swirls in skirts and headpieces created by Stephen Jones.Masculine-feminine tailoring was also incorporated in some of the looks were fitted jackets were paired with culottes and a-line skirts. The combination of all created a modern day fairy tale.
