Attending the Christian Dior Show in Paris. This year Maria Grazia Chiuri worked with Ukrainian artist Olesia Trofymenko for the Haute Couture collection. She wanted to support and spotlight the work of an artist in the time of war. The collection was romantic, and the reference to embroidery is inspired by Ukrainian folk costumes. The Tree of Life was used as an emblematic theme, as it occurs across many cultures and religions. It speaks about the circle of life. Christian Dior’s foundation story was that he set up his couture house right after World War II. It was a beautiful show with long silhouettes, blouses, big sleeves, and capes floating down the runway. Bar Jackets were constructed from finely pleated hand-smocking with long flowing silk dresses in beige, white and black.
