THIS week Maria Grazia Chiuri unveils her inaugural collection for Dior at Paris Fashion Week – a significant occasion for the Italian designer who previously headed Valentino, as she will be the first woman to have done so in the brand’s 60-year history.
While preparations for the show have been underway, the house has chosen to highlight the work undertaken by the many talented, industrious and inspiring women who have contributed to the realisation of Chuiri’s vision, posting a series of short clips on Instagram under the hashtag #thewomenbehindthedress, in which several of the petites mains are introduced to the spotlight, as well as calligrapher Lili, premiere d’atelier Aicha Neddaf and a number of the models who will showcase the designs on the runway.
Gain a touching insight into their passions and musings – Dior invites you to discover the women behind the dress on Instagram now.
