Opening Paris Fashion Week today is the Dior Spring/Summer 2019 show, and judging by the teaser videos released so far, dance and fashion are set to meet on the runway. “The story comes from inside the body,” goes a caption of a video posted on the French fashion house’s Instagram account. It’s credited to Israeli choreographer Sharon Eyal, whose work has been called inventive, mesmerising and provocative. Little is revealed in the teaser video, other than closeup shots of the dancers’ limbs in motion. But as one would expect from Maria Grazi Churi, Dior’s first female artistic director, it will be a powerful show that champions female empowerment.
How will she work choreography into the collection? Watch the teaser video for clues, and tune in at 8:30pm (Singapore time) here for the first look.
