Another Maria Grazia Chiuri production for Dior likely means another cultural deep dive for the Parisian fashion house. This time around, the destination of Mumbai in India was chosen not just as the backdrop for the runway presentation but also as a key pillar of how the season's clothes will be crafted. Working together with Karishma Swali of Chanakya Atelier and the Chanakya School of Craft, the collection explored colour-blocks on silk, intricate embroidery, and decorative motifs unique to Indian culture. Meanwhile, A-list guests from around the globe got to experience the richness of Indian culture, including Cara Delevingne, Simone Ashley, and Karlie Kloss.
