Paris Haute Couture: A Mythical Forest At Dior
In a scene that seems to be inspired by Shakespeare’s story about fairies, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” viewers were transported to a make-believe environment in the Musée Rodin gardens during Christian Dior’s show.
For her debut as Creative Director, Maria Grazia Chiuri had models walk through a lush garden with moss, dense hedges and paths with scattered leaves.
The clothes also had a mythical feel, as we saw lavish embroidery and appliqué, tulle gowns with delicate straps and tailored pure, simple outlines.
