January 30, 2024: The conversation commenced with the introduction of Christian Dior’s La Cigale dress from the 1952 autumn-winter collection. This iconic dress highlights the atelier’s focus on “sculptural construction and moiré fabric.” A true masterpiece, it featured a sleeved bodice paired with a skirt that gracefully arched out at the hipbone.

It was the moiré fabric and its distinctive appearance that permeated Maria Grazia Chiuri's haute couture Spring/Summer 2024 runway, titled Big Aura. A variety of pieces in the collection embraced this technique, creating a stunning display of the fabric's weaving pattern.
