Dior gets its first female creative director

It’s about time, right? Fashion icon Maria Grazia Chiuri will spearhead the fashion line’s creative endeavors, leaving her post at Valentino, according to recent post on Dior’s Instagram.

 

The fashion industry is often branded as a “woman’s arena” few ladies actually run the show.

While visionaries like Coco Chanel, Miuccia Prada and Donatella Versace defined the industry, many of the top brands like Louis Vuitton, Chanel and many more have men at the helm.

We’re excited to see what Chiuri does with Dior – the largest luxury apparel company on the planet, according to Forbes, with more than $41 billion in sales and $1.7 billion in profit.

Chiuri was born and raised in Rome and studied at Istituto Europeo di Design. According to Harper’s Bazaar, her favorite color is black, she enjoys both the book and movie versions of “Pride and Prejudice” and hates cheese.
