As Designer Maria Grazia Chiuri unveiled Dior's Couture Spring-Summer 2022 collection, all eyes were on the beautiful embroidered Indian tapestries which formed the backdrop at the Musee Rodin in Paris.

Created by artistic legends Madhvi Parekh and Manu Parekh, it was rendered in embroidery by the Chanakya School of Craft in Mumbai.

200,000 hours were spent to create the splendid tapestries which adorned the walls of the Dior show venue.
