Haute Couture Savoir-faire: Sunray Pleating

Identifiable by its successive folds, sunray pleating is the only type of pleating used in the first Dior haute couture collection designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri. Whether on the panels of a dress or a neckline, these folds are made in specialized ateliers using cardboard forms according to the traditional pleating technique.

Experts in the art of sculpting the most delicate of fabrics, the pleaters of Maison Lognon have been heavily involved in exercising their artisanal skill on the creations in Maria Grazia Chiuri’s first haute couture collection for Dior.
