Ever since Raf Simons departed Dior last October, the house has been scrambling to find a suitable replacement for him. After weeks of rumors, it was finally announced that Maria Grazia Chiuri will take the helm of the historic house. Chiuri just departed from Valentino, where she served as creative director, and she will be the first woman to be in charge at Dior since the house began.
This is an extremely interesting selection because Dior revolutionized how women dressed and how women approached fashion, but the creative director has always been male. It’ll be cool to see how a woman reimagines the Dior woman. In any case, we look forward to next season.
