Dior invited its guest to a dazzling forrest for their Spring 2020 show. This collection displayed a focus on sustainability, as Maria Grazia Chiuri joined forces with Coloco, an environmental design collective, and the 160 trees present at the shows will be planted around Paris.

The collection was also inspired by Christian Dior's sister, Catherine Dior, who apart from being a professional gardener and botanist at a time where women avoided such physical jobs, was part of the resistance in World War II and imprisoned in concentration camps. Her strong spirit is weaved in the collection, which is designed for empowered women such as herself.
