Dior’s fashions shows have always been extravagant, from John Galliano’s historic masked balls to Raf Simons’ intellectual presentations. But for spring 2019, the ballet that accompanied the fashion was a lot more intrinsic to what Maria Grazia Chiuri wanted to convey. “I think that dance and fashion are very close, for they both speak about the body.” explained the creative director. Her statement emphasized the new silhouettes from the collections, which were more fitted but with less rigor. The classic Dior shapes were not as defined as usual, but the dresses were draped so excellently on the female form that they still adhered to the house’s famous codes. In essence, the Dior woman seen on the runway that day was more herself rather than the fantasy of what she can be.
