On Monday, Maria Grazia Chiuri took over the Plaza de España in Seville to showcase her latest collection. She turned to local artisans for inspiration and even engaged a local workshop, Orfebraria Ramos, who worked on restoring church interiors. The restoration specialists created pendants, earrings, and other jewelry with roses as well as Dior’s favorite flower: Christian Dior’s favorite flowers.
Jesús Rosado, which specializes in liturgical clothing, did the intricate gold embroidery on dresses, fringed jackets, and vests. Chiuri studied fabrics, textures, and embroidery of images at the Basilica de la Macarena and Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de la Concepción when deciding on fabric for her collection.
This collection features two-piece suits, dresses with lots of ruffles and black lace, and a variety of colors. Take inspiration from María Ángeles Vila Tortosa’s prints, which are an homage to Carmen Amaya, better known as La Capitán.
