DIOR CELEBRATES FEMINISM AND ART IN THEIR PARIS FASHION WEEK show
Fashion Week has arrived in Paris. And PFW begins with Christian Dior, who debuted their Spring/Summer 2018 collection with a bang, creating a '60s grunge atmosphere. The concept of the show clearly portrayed feminism in a fashion-forward way—what Dior is known to do best.
The show took place at the Musée Rodin and was covered in creativity, featuring walls resembling smooth clay, multiple art fixtures, and even 80,000 pieces of mirror covering the scene. Maria Grazia Chiuri, creative director of Dior, paid homage to Niki de Saint Phalle— French-American feminist sculptor, painter, and muse of previous designer Marc Bohan.
Maria Grazia’s Dior takeover is all about women and empowering them to achieve anything. The collection with a series of biker girl looks featuring lots of flare, stunning prints, patterns, and mesmerizing materials. Maria Grazia even dug into the Dior archives by referencing Bohan’s iconic creations and morphing them into black and white checkered pieces.
