Dior’s first female creative director, Maria Grazia Chiuri, was the star turn at Paris fashion week as she launched her haute couture collection.
With a fantasy theme, the styles were inspired by nature and fairytale.
Chiuri, who took over from Raf Simons last year, described her efforts to maintain a “wearable” element to her designs.
“It’s important to give a dream but a real dream, something for every day,” she noted.
“She brought the idea of a woman and a woman who understands the women of today, younger women,” said Dior CEO Sidney Toledano.
