Speaking of her appointment back in July, the former Co-Creative Director at Valentino said she "couldn't wait" to express her vision.
"I measure the tremendous responsibility of being the first woman in charge of a house so deeply rooted in the pure expression of femininity,” Chirui said in a statement.
"Seventy-five per cent of Dior staff are women," Sidney Toledano, Dior Couture chief executive, tells the Business of Fashion. "Having a woman at the label is in keeping with the changing times. [Britain] will have a female PM, American might have a female president. Fashion isn’t involved in political, social or economic matters on the surface. But it reflects a changing mood."
"There’s a new generation coming and the women of today have a very important role in the world’s future," he continued.
