Following the departure of Raf Simons last year from Dior, rumors have swirled regarding who would be taking his place. It appears that Italian designer Maria Grazia Chiuri who currently splits duties as co-creative director at Valentino will be Dior’s new creative director. The appointment marks the first ever for a female at Dior in this role in the label’s 60-year history. Dior is said to be making an official announcement after its couture show in July.
