Maria Grazia Chiuri 

ODDA Magazine 

The course of Dior’s history has become a magnificent example of not only the continuation of heritage and tradition, but its persistent existence alongside the changes of modernity. However, there is little comparison to be made when Maria Grazia Chiuri is thrown into the conversation. Having taken over in 2016 as Creative Director of Women’s Haute Couture, Ready-to-Wear and Accessories collections, Maria Grazia’s vision, discipline and femininity has propelled the very essence of the luxury label into a new era. Yet, while her existence as a woman has certainly weaved itself into her direction for Dior, much of the relaying conversation still surrounds her womanhood rather than the journey of talent and work that she has undergone. Getting personal with Chiuri, we discover the driving forces behind the visionary and the reasons why her actions hold such an intimate standing for her.
