A new two-part fashion documentary, entitled Inside Dior, will air on the first day of New York Fashion Week. The mini-series will be shown on the British TV channel More 4, and according to the channel, it will “provide a talking point for discussions about fashion and female identity and how that has changed since Dior launched in the 1940s.” The new doc follows the successful 2015 film, Dior and I – where the cameras caught Raf Simons’ pre-show emotional state.
This season, we saw a debut collection by new Creative Director, Maria Grazia Chiuri, for the French house. Ethereal pieces were combined with bold slogan t-shirts stating “We Should All Be Feminists”. Chiuri is the first female ever to lead the label – known for its inherently feminine aesthetic. The first episode of the two-part doc, revolves around the preparation for Dior’s 70th birthday, while the second installment follows the build up towards Chiuri’s first show for the house.
