Dior to appoint Valentino's Maria Chiuri as creative director

Dior has reportedly appointed Valentino’s co-creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri as its new creative head.



Chiuri has been co-creative director at Valentino since 2008, along with her design partner Pierpaolo Piccioli.

The news of her appointment is expected to be announced after the Dior couture show in July, Reuters has reported. 

Chiuri will become the first female creative director in the French fashion house’s 70-year history and will replace Raf Simons, who left unexpectedly in October.
