VIDEO | Dior Couture Spring Summer 2017 Paris

Monsieur Dior laid the foundations of a history that was handed over to Yves Saint-Laurent and Marc Bohan who continued and, until Gianfranco Ferré, with a classic, traditional kind of couture. John Galliano crafted a fantasy and then with Raf Simons, the story turned towards modernism. I’ve just started a relationship with an atelier that has had to put itself at the service of these incredible creative minds. And, in this job, I have tried to maintain the more traditional and artisanal aspects of couture, which comes from my Italian heritage, mixed with a more dreamlike aspect of French culture. My journey into the labyrinth of couture; a mysterious journey, it was tough but there was a light at the end of the tunnel,” shared Maria Grazia Chiuri.
