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.
