DIOR Pre-Fall 2023 Trunk Show
Celebrating the arrival in stores of the Dior Pre-Fall 2023 collection, gave me the amazing opportunity to visit London and work again with one of the top luxury brands in the fashion landscape.
Since I lived in London for about five years and worked several times there with Dior, I have to say that it felt slightly emotional to get back and have this chance, making my brief stay a very special one.
The Dior Trunk Show, set up in the flagship Sloane Street store, was certainly an exciting moment, filled with lovely encounters, talented sitar musicians to provide a unique atmosphere and beautiful models rocking the new collection.
Presented last month in Mumbai, the Dior Pre-Fall 2023 collection by Maria Grazia Chiuri is a joyful celebration of heritage craftsmanship, wisely mixing French and Indian couture into a one-of-a-kind marriage.
This relationship between the French Maison and India was originally born under the creative direction of Marc Bohanm, who visited the country in 1962, and it's now explored through a more contemporary lens.
As for me, the Trunk Show was quite busy as people started queueing to have one of my quick portraits right after the beginning of the event! It was, above all, quite flattering, but also an adrenaline rush which definitely pushed me to create some lovely pieces of art!
Thank you so much to the Dior Uk team for having me once again, it was an absolute pleasure! Check out the following pictures for a glimpse of the event!
