All that star power aside, this was not a collection of glitz and Glam. Maria Grazia Chiuri was shaping the new pieces with an understated frame of mind. The pieces are often devoid of any glitz and are minimal in the style while the focus is on tailoring and craftsmanship behind the same. Perhaps the collection’s simplicity is a protest against abundance. The state of the world and the political situation which clearly affects Maria Grazia Chiuri as much as any of us. Empowering lines such as ”patriarchy kills love” and ”feminine beauty is a ready ready made” as well as ”women raise the uprising” were the bold inspiration bordering the show venue. Even before the show started the neon capitals made the rounds on Instagram.
 
Perhaps the strongest message came behind the single word: CONSENT. A word repeating above the runway throughout the venue coincides with today’s news of Harvey Weinstein conviction. While a victory for the #MeToo for many it is still hard to celebrate. Grazia Chirui’s messages at today show stand as strong as the one Annabella Sciorra shared – one of the six women who testified against Harvey Weinstein. Sciorra shared after the trial “We can never regret breaking the silence.” 
 
This empowering sentiment came as quick as the first step on the runway. The double breasted black suit that opened the show and the straightforward tailoring that followed it explained the designer’s instinct behind the collection. Fringed dresses were as equally warrant while garments featuring handmade embroideries celebrated Dior’s unique flare for craftsmanship. 
 

The message of empowerment sent at Dior show following Milan Fashion Week’s struggles with the fear of pandemic as well as the turmoil on the political scene seems like a much needed encouragement to keep fighting for the necessary equality. Nevertheless perhaps this sort of messages are likely to resonate with buyers who are likewise turned off by the complications and complexities of our modern times. Those who are simply in the mood for something beautiful will find much to long after here as well. Usually Maria Grazia Chiuri serves up her messages without any fear, today pretty was not an only agenda. There was something something encouraging about it.
