I was inspired to write this post having recently watched the ‘Inside Dior’ documentary which is currently available on All4 (you have 28 days left to watch it!).
I was really pleasantly surprised at the heritage, staff and passion that exuded from the TV screen, particularly as I feel Dior can sometimes come across as quite a ‘cold’ brand (personal opinion), but it seemed like a really family friendly company, and one that anyone would want to work for.
The programme was focused on Dior announcing their new designer, which turned out to be Italian designer Maria Grazia Chiuri (the first female to front the fashion house in its 70 year history), and showcasing her first collection for Spring/Summer 2017. It gave us an inside look into their haute couture, perfume and beauty brands, and the people behind them, as well as featuring the stunning soirees and chateaux’s once owned by Mr Dior himself.
The reason for me featuring it today, is there was a surprising presence of white in Maria’s first ‘ready to wear’ collection (her usual style being quite gothic in nature) which you could certainly get away with down the aisle. In fact it would look fresh, stylish and extremely current. Besides, you can usually only wear Dior for your wedding having had a haute couture gown customised (upwards of £20k which let’s be honest breaks most budgets!)
So here are my best of the rest for bridal gowns Dior 2017 style…
A few are a bit Angelina Jolie (her wedding dress to Brad Pitt where the children basically scribbled all over it) but for those wanting something a bit different then they fit the bill!
I’m now more intrigued that ever to see how Maria’s presence at the leading French fashion house has an impact and what her next collection holds…
