Dior unveils runway show in Mumbai

Mere weeks after her Paris Fashion Week outing, Dior’s Maria Grazia Chiuri took us on another journey—this time to Mumbai. With a staggering 99-look collection, it’s safe to say no time, energy, or expense was spared as the artistic director presented a love letter to the country’s incredible artisans and traditions. The synergy between Dior and Indian embroidery houses goes way back, and the maison’s top designers over the last several decades have often shown against the vivid and colorful backdrop of the country. Since she took the helm, Chiuri has collaborated with the non-profit Chanakya School of Craft countless times, but in this instance, it was an all-out celebration of that relationship with a well-attended show in the city itself. At the Gateway of India ceremonial arch-monument, models took to the marigold-lined catwalk to showcase the awe-inspiring work of the 700 women currently enrolled at Chanakya School of Craft. As always, Chiuri paid homage to her predecessors at the luxury label (in this case, Marc Bohan, who had shown collections in India in the early 1960s, who was referenced in the color blocking). Tipping her hat to her adopted home for the evening, Chiuri also showed sophisticated evening coats and straight skirts inspired by the sari and traditional Indian cuts, peacock and floral prints that evoked Bollywood visuals, a take on the celebrated Indian rani pink, and a new Dior Toile de Jouy fabric reimagined through a tropical Indian landscape.

Peek inside The Frick Collection Young Fellows Ball 2023 

Last night, guests descended on Frick Madison for the annual Young Fellows Ball. This year’s event was hosted in partnership with Irene Neuwirth, and saw attendees enjoy a ‘Bejeweled’-themed affair amongst artwork by Degas, Rembrandt, Van Dyck, and others. The theme nods to the current special exhibition at Frick Madison, The Gregory Gift, and guests certainly adhered to the sparkle-oriented memo. Chairmen for the benefit, which helps provide essential support for the Frick’s activities, programs, and education efforts were Paul Arnhold, Drew Garrison, Ivy Getty, Wes Gordon, Louisa Jacobson, and Indré Rockefeller. Joining them on the night, enjoying drinks, delicious bites, and dancing to music by Angel + Dren were Bosilika An, Jeremy Batoff and Eric Goldie, Marie-Laure Buku Pongo, Eaddy Kiernan Bunzel, Angie Calderwood, Giulio Dalvit, John Grisham, Mercedes de Guardiola, Allison Ecung, Jacqueline Elfe, Alexandra Gray, Alexander Hankin, Fiona Hilton, Casey Kohlberg, Elizabeth Kurpis, Stirling Larkin, Brian Lei, Teresa Lin, Bach Mai, Araminta Mellon, Harlan Minor, Arielle Patrick, Anita Saggurti, Ian Wardropper, and Blaike Young, among others.
