For Day 1 of Paris's Spring 2020 Haute Couture shows, Christian Dior's Maria Grazia Chiuri presented an ethereal line up standing out amongst the other designers who pushed for the Avant-Garde. The latest collection for the house of Christian Dior brought romance to the runway, with the creative director's grecco-roman inspired visions coming to life. Bringing back classic silhouettes of Dior's early days and infusing it with modern hemlines and elegant cutouts, Chiuri has created yet another powerful lineup for the brand. The Italian designer has presented the modern woman in the eyes of the French Maison, with strong goddess-esque looks with all fabrics flowing behind each model. The collection seemed to be more of a love letter to how resilient and brave today's women are, in silhouettes that capture the movement and feminine bodices of women. Based around earth tones and sprinkled with pops of color, each ensemble allowed the woman wearing them to shine. Chiuri managed to combine fabrics such as metallic taffeta and silk chiffon and give them all an equally powerful presence, with strong shoulders in the house's signature bar jacket and necklines on flowy gowns that flaunted the d├ęcolletage. As each woman floated through the couture catwalk like doves in the sky, Chiuri managed to illustrate that the Dior woman is a force to be reckoned with.
