Maria Grazia Chiuri has been designing accessories since 1999. Trained under the master couturier himself, Valentino designer Maria Grazia Chiuri have proved worthy heirs to his legacy: elegance above everything else.

Dior is said to have set its sights on Maria Grazia Chiuri, one of the creative directors at Valentino as its new creative head.

First- ever female creative director of Christian Dior's Chiuri is about to make history. Chiuri will be following in the footsteps of celebrated designers including Yves Saint Laurent, John Galliano and Gianfranco Ferré. The designer replaces Raf Simons, who departed from his role as creative director last October.
