Maria Grazia reached out to Chiuri to make her Dior Fall 2023 show one of the brand’s most historic. Held in Mumbai at India’s gateway, the show held a world-class new collection filled with cultural excellence due to the creative director’s collaboration with the Chanakya school. A feeling that unites us through their clothes with the talent and ‘savoir-fair’ of this country.
Maria Grazia Chiuri was one of those who greatly promoted the creation of this school. A place of exchange, study and emancipation for women that Chiuri has long celebrated because of the working relationships – and friendship – that unite her with Karishma Swali, who directs the school’s workshops.
In this very special collection, this collaboration can be recognized through the exquisite and delicate works of feathers and unique clothing and school.

According to Dior records, the designer Marc Bohan traveled to India in 1962 to achieve the brand’s goals under his artistic direction: younger customers, more ready and modern approaches and especially “prêt-à’-porter”. .
In this way, for the new autumn line, Maria Grazia Chiuri chose a palette of colors and materials that emphasize the impressions of Swali, but also adore Marc Boham, returning his favorite models of the most healthy clothes.
It is presented in urban and elegant evening dresses, skirts with Indian cut blouses, jackets, boleros, bras… A line created by the influence of different cultures and heritages, but with that present and updated touch.
Not quite the first of this collection? Acupuncture, a tool that can be used by women. Although individual gold and silver sequins or ‘brass’ also stand out, the decorative motifs come from a mixture of colors and the flora of the region that characterizes silk pajamas, jackets and dresses.
Thus, Maria Grazia’s mission to combine the ties between ancient traditions and the extreme innovation of the time, is once again a complete success.
