Dior Confirms Maria Grazia Chiuri as New Artistic Director

The first woman to ever hold the position.

Shortly following the news of Maria Grazia Chiuri’s departure from Valentino, Christian Dior’s CEO Sidney Toledano has confirmed that the house has appointed Chiuri as its new artistic director. Filling the spot vacated by Raf Simons, the ex-Valentino co-designer will be the first woman to hold the job with Toledano noting, “The idea of hiring a woman is something I had in mind, and this woman was the right one.” Chiuri is slated to start her new role next week as Dior‘s artistic director of women’s haute couture, RTW and accessory collections. She will present her first official collection on September 30 for the Spring 2017 RTW season, while her first couture show will debut next January.
