It is rare that any designer has any free time in the days leading up to a runway show, but Dior’s creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri always finds time for friends. “We are both so excited that she could show me her House and share the fine details of the atelier,” said Palermo.
This spring’s couture collection has a circus theme—and anything goes at the circus, including gorgeous gowns. “Here we’re admiring the savoir faire that goes into each piece of the collection,” Palermo said. Every runway look is hand-sewn by a highly skilled member of the atelier.
“We’re looking at the exquisite details that come only as a result of the finest craftsmanship,” she explained. This ballerina-style dress featured pieces of tulle woven together by hand.
