Inside Dior Men’s Virtual Extravaganza with Kailand Morris

Inside Dior Men’s Virtual Extravaganza with Kailand Morris

Kailand Morris isn’t your average front row attendee. Sure, Morris is a musician, designer, and the stylish son of music legend Stevie Wonder, but he’s also a part of Dior Men’s behind-the-scenes team. As an intern to creative director Kim Jones for the last three seasons, he’s been privy to the inner workings of one of the world’s most beloved brands, and receiving a priceless, hands-on fashion education. “Dior holds a special place in my heart,” shared Morris via email from Los Angeles.

“I’ve learned so much from Kim; he is a mentor to me and one of my favorite designers. I enjoy watching everything he does.”

Instead of jetting off to Europe, Morris enjoyed today's virtual Fall 2021 show from the comfort of his living room. Still, like any true fashion week lover, he’s looking forward to the real-world experience. “I do miss sitting at the shows in Paris,” says Morris. As much as he’s eager to revisit 30 Avenue Montaigne and see the entire team once more, Morris was quick to point out that 2020’s inclusive and online-focused collections do have their advantages. “I’m always going back and pausing my favorite looks and examining all the details,” he says, noting the talents of his mentor. “Kim Jones pays attention to the details.”

Here, the rising star guides Vogue through his getting ready and all the VR fun his Dior filled day.

Early morning out of the shower, getting ready for the day...Dior show later in the evening!

At my local market shopping for some breakfast.

Back at home, eating the first meal of the day.

Off to work on some of my clothing projects. Coming soon!

I got dressed in my Dior look, ready to watch the show, and then some flowers from the Dior team came [and the] colors literally matched my outfit.

In my look around the house!

Lastly, closing out my day with some guitar next to my little pup Cairo.
