A desert vibe emerged as guests took a journey against a natural orange sunset, Dior hot air balloons, and a mountainous backdrop (a social media lover’s dream) at Dior’s 2018 Cruise Runway Show.
Designer Maria Grazia Chiuri is believed to have gained inspiration for her collection from wall paintings in the Lascaux cave, which was also the inspiration of Monsieur Dior himself back in the early '50s according to Harper’s Bazaar.

Churi’s wild-wild west collection featured clothes that were high fashion but still wearable for the everyday woman. Bright colored primitive print dresses, wide-brimmed hats were worn by every model, and each western hat featured intricate hand paintings reimagined from cave walls, and lots of airy dresses that flowed right above the dusty runway path as models stomped their way through the safari like tents.
