Dior will livestream their Cruise 2020 show from Marrakesh on Monday 29 April at 8pm (Tuesday 30th April at 5am, Australian Eastern Standard Time). For those not present in the medieval city in Western Morocco, artistic director Maria Grazia Chiuri promises a collection of locally inspired prints – with a spotlight on their craftsmanship no less – and intricate detailing by hand if Dior’s teaser video is anything to go by. Just as she placed women at the front and centre of her circus-themed couture spring 19 show, the term culture – and what it teaches us – seemingly serves as Chiuri’s muse this season. “Culture teaches us to live together, teaches us that we’re not alone in the world, that other people have different traditions and ways of living that are just as valid as our own.” The message couldn’t be more timely. But the biggest question: After Fall 19’s teddy girl lashes – a nod to a modern day Twiggy – how will Dior top a beauty look beyond a pot of black pigment? We wait with bated breath… See you at 5am. Full fashion and beauty show reports to follow.
