The designs from the female Spring 2018 Dior haute couture collection are compliant with the fashion power house's vision and style. In tune with the female empowerment movement, Italian designer Maria Grazia Chiuri pays tribute to surrealist Leonor Fini— a 20th century female artist. Unlocking the subconscious, the fashion visionary sought to produce a powerful and dream-like couture collection that was in line with Fini's artistic vision.
The Spring 2018 collection is elegant and suggestive of grandeur, featuring classic Dior feathered designs and haute couture masks. The designer made some bold choices by allowing some dress designs to be more revealing than others. The purpose was not only to bring female artists into the spotlight and to showcase classic Dior haute couture. A key motive was to also celebrate the female body and its dominant presence in art.
