Maria Grazia Chiuri’s moodboard for the collection, presented on 24 January, was dedicated to craftsmanship. Models presented the pieces against the background of vast tapestries, comprising the work of Indian artists Madhvi and Manu Parekh, rendered in embroidery by artisans at Mumbai-based Chanakya School of Craft.

The entire collection was in muted colours of whites, blacks and greys, focusing on the tradition and importance of embroidery as an art.
The embroidered stockings were the other highlight of the show.
Despite being all couture, the collection had an interesting mix of daywear, including super luxe dresses and sharp tailored suits.
