On the heels of Dior’s Spring 2019 Couture presentation comes the exciting news that the show is soon landing in the Middle East. Drawing from the house’s archive – which has long held fascination with the circus as far back as 1955 and has continued to be a theme in throughout its history – the #DiorDreamParade will bring its Big Top action to Dubai on March 18, 2019.
For Spring 2019 Couture, Maria Grazia Chiuri cleverly married Dior codes to circus elements like “tattooed” body suits, chiffon tutus, ruffs, leather corsets, and even masculine “ringmaster” suiting. Supporting the theme were a mesmerizing variety of Fortuny-pleated dresses, chiffon gowns, and raffia woven looks amplified by ruffled dimensions. For the Dubai event, Grazia Chiuri will also create new looks that are exclusive to the show.
With actual acrobats from the all-female circus company Mimbre performing feats of wonder alongside the runway show, two universes collided: fantasy and fashion. While details about the show, including its location, have yet to be announced, we are certain the Dubai version of the presentation will bring the same energy and enticement to a regional audience. Watch this space for more news and information about what is sure to be one of the biggest fashion events of the season.
