After the welcome dinner, guests were invited to see the spectacular fashion show in the gardens of the majestic Villa Erba  were the 170 pieces signed by Victoire de Castellane were showcased on models celebrating more than ever the natural world so dear to Christian Dior.

Christian Dior had a fond for gardens, maybe so more than fashion and fine arts, nature was always at the core of his inspiration when he designed his master couture pieces and this is the staring point of inspiration for Victoire de Castellene.

A meeting of Dior universes, these precious creations were revealed alongside haute couture silhouettes designed up by Maria Grazia Chiuri, in a oneiric show. In the garden, two tableaux vivants spotlighted this fascinating artistic dialogue, bringing together the virtuosity of jewelry-making savoir-faire and that of couture.

A spellbinding spectacle – concluded with a majestic fireworks display – combining Parisian elegance and Italian dolce vita.
