'The labyrinth; irregular, almost impenetrable, like a secret garden.' This is the image that inspired Maria Grazia Chiuri, Artistic Director of Dior's women's collections, for her first Haute Couture season. Fascinated by the myriad of interpretations she perceived her adventure into Dior like entering a labyrinth, the way sprinkled with the flowers, plants and allegorical images. The result is evening dresses which evoke the passing of the seasons in powdery mauve, blue, pink and gray with layers of tulle trapping exquisite flowers. Lace is cut out and remounted on organza, and pleated tulles are layered in ethereal and majestic compositions. Headpieces bring an aspect of gothic phantasmagoric with a punk edge. Maria Grazia Chiuri embellished her creations with embroidered stars that stand out against gold-colored tulle, tarot symbols that are hand-painted on the white panels of long dresses. And for the finale a splendid ball gown straight out of a fairy tale.
