The Christian Dior label opened Haute Couture Fashion Week 2023 with designs inspired by Greek statues at Rodin Museum in Paris on Monday.
The runway Dior designs paid homage to the classical-era statues in ancient Greece. A long white woollen dress with a matching cape was the first piece to kick off the show.
Models were draped in simple, sophisticated designs with flat sandals to embody the classical essence of ancient Greek statues.
Dior designer, Maria Grazia Chiuri, told AFP: “This collection is not for the red carpet as we imagine it today. These are not items that are necessarily designed to be seen by others. They are more for the person who is wearing them.”
Hairstylist, Guido Palau, and team braided the model’s hair into teardrop-shaped braids adding a classical element to the collection.
