Celebrating the launch of their new store in Ginza Six, a luxury fashion mall in the heart of Tokyo, Dior treated select guests to a bespoke runway show featuring new updates from their spring/summer 2017 haute couture collection. Held on the roof of the building, the show was set amongst lush greenery in the form of a maze, with fresh flowers and botanicals echoing the Paris show held in January. 

 

Channeling Japanese influences, the designer took inspiration from cherry blossoms that had just bloomed around the city as well as Christian Dior’s 1953 “Jardin Japonais” dress, nodding to the National Cherry Blossom Festival known as 'Hanami,' celebrating the arrival of spring. 

Decorated with ultra-feminine floral embellishments and her now-signature celestial influences, the dusky pink and mauve editions to Dior's original couture offering made this an unforgettable collection.
