Maria Grazia Chiuri’s debut at Christian Dior
10.10.2016 11:38

The legendary Fashion House hires the very first woman for the position of the Creative Director. Despite the usual for Dior femininity and romanticism, it has perhaps been missing out the emerging trends and lifestyle choices of the women of the 21st century. So how does Maria Grazia Chiuri see a woman today?

“The message, really, is that there is not one kind of woman,” she said. Her first collection for the Spring/Summer 2017 season has spoken louder than words, we saw  a refreshingly widened viewpoint, inclusive of the sporty and the fragile rather than the traditional lady-like pieces that we are so used to. As a result we saw a collection of relatable, simple, practical pieces aimed at attracting  a new audience to Dior.

As all eyes were on the opening piece at the show, the new Creative Director made her strong bold point by having shaven-headed Ruth Bell opening the show in a white fencing jacket and knickerbockers. The SS17 collection was also rich with lacy blouses and beautifully embroidered tulle dresses and skirts, definitely proving the point that women are and rightfully can be different. One of the intriguing and refreshing highlights of the collection were the faded slogan tees, one of them reading: “We should all be feminists.”
