After 70 Years…Dior appoints Maria Grazia Chiuri as 1st Woman Creative Director



Maria for Dior

Congratulations to Maria Grazia Chiuri.

For the first time in Dior‘s 70-year history, the luxury fashion label has appointed its first woman creative director.

For months, fashion insiders have been speculating that the label was in talks with Maria, after Raf Simons‘ departure in 2015.

The reports intensified yesterday when it was announced that Chiuri was leaving her position as co-creative director of Valentino.

Today, Dior confirmed Chiuri’s position. Maria Grazia Chiuri will be responsible for women’s haute couture, ready-to-wear and accessories.

She will present her first collection in September during Paris Fashion Week.

    It’s ironic how men dominate a market where women are their main clients. They sell to us what they think we like and is appealing to us. What we think we want to see on men. Even the products for men, women are the ones who still buy them for men in our lives. Yet women are limited in the fashion and beauty world.

      Why don’t you just say what you want to say, Ki o to ma gege s’eyin, dribbling backwards like Mikel Obi. We know what thou meanest. Anyway congrats to all strong women doing us proud. From Britain, to Yankee, to Germany and soon to be everywhere. Since Men have used ego, treachery, hunger for punani, ITK to sell their birthright let finger licking porridge be their portion. Asaro elepo. By 2020 women would be the new face of leadership, while they shine like stars men would be obsessed with shining congo . Osinachi
