Spring-Summer 2019
Ready-to-Wear Show

The story comes from inside the body.”  Sharon Eyal

Dance and fashion define the body, and through discipline, teach us to own it. Dance is an act of liberation that allows us to connect with the deepest part of our being. Dance—and the artists who shook up its established codes—are also at the heart of Dior’s Spring 2019 Ready-to-Wear collection.

Much like Christian Dior who collaborated with Roland Petit on the ballet Treize Danses and counted famed ballerina Margot Fonteyn among his clients, Maria Grazia Chiuri drew her inspiration from dance and its contemporary heroines. Sharon Eyal (a Tel Aviv-based choreographer who created a conceptual piece for the Spring 2019 show), Loïe Fuller, Isadora Duncan, Ruth Saint Denis, Martha Graham, and Pina Bausch are all women the creative director cited and celebrated on the runway.

Chiuri described dance as an “intimate truth” and a form of “universal expression” that stimulated her imagination and sparked a collection that corresponds to the movement of the body. Tanks, jumpsuits, airy skirts, voluminous gowns made from multiple layers of tulle, and relaxed-fit denim provide the wearer with a sense of freedom. Meanwhile, sandals and ballet flats lace up the front of the ankle like a classic pointe shoe and, at times, balance atop a Plexiglas heel. As Chiuri explained, a dancer, much like the pieces seen on the runway for Spring 2019, are “fragile but strong at the same time.”
