Dior celebrates 70th anniversary at Paris Fashion Week


In celebration of Christian Dior’s 70th anniversary, Italian creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri unveiled a highly-anticipated Autumn/Winter 2017-18 Haute Couture collection in Paris on Monday (July 3), in the form of an homage to the haughty and travelled beauties of the brand’s founder who passed away in 1957.

The Italian’s first Haute Couture collection was presented on a fern-lined outdoor catwalk near Paris’ Hotel des Invalides, with celebrities, including singer Celine Dion and Spanish actress Rossy de Palma, in attendance.

Chiuri said she had been inspired by a map she found in the fashion house’s archives, symbolizing Christian Dior’s willingness to allow cultures from around the world to influence his work.

Later on Monday, Paris’s Decorative Arts Museum will hold a VIP opening for its latest exhibition, “Christian Dior: dream designer”, bringing together the designs and cultural inspiration behind Dior’s history.
