Dior to show at Mumbai’s ‘Gateway of India’ monument
The show is scheduled to be held on Thursday 30 March
Dior’s Maria Grazia Chiuri is set to showcase her 2023 pre-fall collection at the historic Gateway of India monument in Mumbai.
The show, which is scheduled to be held on Thursday 30 March, will be the first time an European luxury brand will make its way to India.
The collection will feature silk dresses, evening coats, and sari-inspired skirts that reference traditional Indian silhouettes.
In the past few years, Dior’s parent company LVMH opened many of its ateliers to the public as part of a programme called Journées Particulières.
For this event, Dior is reportedly partnering with Chanakya, a Mumbai-based atelier and craftsmanship school for women.
Three women – the house founder’s sister Catherine Dior, a French resistance hero, as well as French singers Edith Piaf and Juliette Greco, each described as “rebellious, at once strong and fragile” – were muses in this collection.
It channeled the 1950s, Christian Dior’s heyday.
