Dior Fall Winter 2016 RTW: Making, Savoir Faire & Behind the Scenes

Discover how Dior ready-to-wear pieces are made. Go behind the scenes at Dior Fall 2016 RTW fashion show and view making of the dresses.


Hey gorgeous! I already wrote about the latest Dior AW16 ready-to-wear collection, which is all about wool coats and clean, modern silhouettes. The dresses range from solids to intricate sequin embroideries and gorgeous nature-inspired hand-painting over print. Wanna see how they were made from the drawing board to the runway? Let’s take a look:

Peplums were exaggerated and asymmetric:DIOR_AW1617_05

One of my favorite patterns was this parrot or two birds in a hand pattern in black and white – which was used in a black silk crepe and printed velvet dress.



Here is yet another bird painting pattern used in an embroidered top paired with a black crepe skirt. The pattern is hand-painted over print, and combined with another pattern.




Here is some more of the embroidery up close and on the table!

Sequins, tulle, flowers and micro-beads – they make up a lot of dreams, don’t they?DIOR_AW1617_15DIOR_AW1617_17

Here’s a cream-colored coat with embroidery.
