Who Will Be Dior's New Creative Director?

by - Monday, July 04, 2016

Just a week to go until I catch the Eurostar to Paris with my other half. Ahead of that this week in fashion its couture week over in Paris. Dior is particularly in spotlight today with the couture crowd. Will the fashion house name its new successor?

Rumours have been circulating for weeks up until this very week. Which is where hopefully Dior will announce their new successor to take over the helm of the fashion house during their couture show today. Reports coming in from various reports that Valentino’s very own Maria Grazia Chiuri is to fill the role after the departure of Raf Simons. The two close sources go unnamed at this time commenting: "close to the matter.”  Chiuri would be Dior's first-ever female creative head.

Dior overall has not made a comment to the matter of whom will take over as creative director of the fashion house. This comes in hand with Valentino’s hand of dealing with the question commenting: "We have no comment at this time as nothing has been confirmed."

We shall let this story unfold as Dior’s autumn and winter 2016 couture is unveiled this afternoon.
