I'm reporting this piece of news to you hot off the press -- Maison Christian Dior has finally announced the appointment of Maria Grazia Chiuri (one half of the Valentino design duo) as Artistic Creative Director! Chiuri will be the head of women's Haute Couture, Ready-to-Wear and Accessory collections! Not only is this wonderful news but also a historic milestone for Dior, because it's the first time ever that a woman has been nominated to take the helm! I wonder though, what's to happen to Pierpaolo Piccoli? They've been an inseparable duo ever since their Fendi days! Anyway, she has lots of work ahead of her, with her debut collection for Dior Spring/Summer 17 in September just a mere 2 months away!!
I can't wait to see what she has in store for Dior, especially without Piccoli!
