Dior appoints Maria Grazia Chiuri as brand’s first female artistic director

Chiuri replaces Raf Simons, who abruptly exited the label in October 2015, leaving Dior without a creative chief.

Sidney Toledano, president and CEO of Christian Dior Couture stated:
"Her vision of women, both sensual and poetic, resonates with that of Monsieur Dior. Her expertise in the art of couture and her passion for craftsmanship will be in perfect harmony with the exceptional know-how of our ateliers."

This also makes her the first women in the French fashion house’s 59-year history, to take that position.

“Having a woman at the label is in keeping with the changing times. [Britain] will have a female PM, American might have a female president. Fashion isn’t involved in political, social or economic matters on the surface. But it reflects a changing mood,” Toledano explained to FT.

“There’s a new generation coming and the women of today have a very important role in the world’s future,” he adds.

Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, previous co-designes for Valentino’s womenswear collections, said in a joint statement:
“After 25 years of creative partnership and of professional satisfactions we gave ourselves the opportunity of continuing our artistic paths in an individual way with the reciprocal desire of further great achievements.”

Piccolo, who is staying at Valentino's, has now sole reins as creative director at the company.
Stefano Sassi, chief executive of Valentino said: “A new and exciting phase for the brand begins under the creative leadership of Pierpaolo Piccioli. The brand is strongly determined to continue its affirmation and development process accomplished in the past years.”
