Dior Show in Spain Glitters With Flamenco Notes, Couture Collaboration
Models present outfits by Christian Dior during a cruise show to unveil the 2023 collection, in Seville, Spain, June 16, 2022
The event is one of several that mark the return of luxury labels to the catwalk after a period of dormancy during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Looks evoked the Duchess of Alba, the world's most titled aristocrat and a flamenco fashion icon for decades at Seville´s Feria de Abril until her death in 2014.
Dior's Italian creative chief, Maria Grazia Chiuri, said the show and collection included several collaborations, including one with Spanish choreographer Blanca Li.
Chiuri said other collaborations produced individual items, such as hats, and what she called a "very unique and haute couture" method of embroidery featuring thread made from "real silver and real gold."
