Last year, Maria Grazia Chiuri made her Dior debut during September Fashion Week, premiering her bold new spring and summer collection. Now, the French maison’s latest artistic director has debuted her 2017 pre-fall collection, which is just as visually stunning and filled with female empowerment as her previous offering.
September 2016 marked Maria Grazia Chiuri’s debut at Christian Dior. Her first collection was a home run, with a fresh, feminine and magical new look for the house. Hoping to give Dior a more modern look, she told Vogue that the message of the collection is, “that there is not one kind of woman.”
Catering to many, the ex- Valentino designer impressed many around the world with her bold new creations. According to the magazine, for future collections, Chiuri plans to draw inspiration from previous Dior designers. “Monsieur Dior only lives 10 years. It can’t only be about him!” she said. “In some ways, I see myself as a curator of the house.”
