Pierpaolo Piccioli leads his artistic team through a vision of dreamscapes as he experiments with the emotion of his creations. With models standing on columns and harnessed in mid-air displaying the gowns that are dramatically extreme in terms of length, Piccioli’s vision becomes enhanced through the creative lens of fashion photographer Nick Knight. Soundtracked with FKA Twigs’ “Mary Magdelene,” the fashion show goes above the limitations of fashion runways, including those induced by the global pandemic. “I didn’t want to feel the limitations. Couture is made for emotions, dreams,” Piccioli released a press conference, “it was super-emotional for us all to be here together to win this challenge. A moment I will never forget.”

When Chiuri became the creative director for Dior, Piccioli continued as creative director with Valentino, furthering the success of the Italian fashion house couture line.
