In a spectacle like Mumbai has not seen before, Christian Dior’s Artistic Director Maria Grazia Chiuri collaborated with Mumbai-based atelier Chanakya School of Craft to unveil a spectacular pre-Fall 2023 show in our City of Gold.
The venue had to be the Gateway of India, and a 14-feet tall lavish toran was installed to greet the superstar guests (don’t ask us who was there, ask us who wasn’t).
‘Women in India have crafted torans for centuries, decorating local fabric by using embroidery and patchwork as a way to welcome guests into their home,’ explained Maria on Instagram. ‘It has been a dream of mine to create a toran for the show installation.’
