More 4 Gets Inside Dior

If your appetite was whetted by 2015’s documentary Dior and I about the iconic fashion house, then you will doubtless be eagerly anticipating a new two-part series called Inside Dior. The first episode is scheduled for 9pm on Thursday February 9th, cleverly coinciding with the first day of New York Fashion Week, and will follow preparations for the fashion house’s 70th birthday. The second episode will focus on the inaugural show of Dior’s new creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri.

Chiuri’s tenure certainly rings the changes since the company’s inception 70 years ago. Her t-shirts bear the slogan ‘We Should All Be Feminists – a world away from the sort of femininity synonymous with the vision of Christian Dior.

More 4 commented that Inside Dior ‘provides a talking point for discussions about fashion and female identity and how that has changed since Dior launched in the 1940s.’
