Dior presents their new series “Feminist Art” through their podcast Dior Talks, a series which explores the female view of the world through the lens of artists who have been their collaborators.

Feminist Art features art historian Katy Hessel’s conversations with different contemporary women artists. Each episode is a recount of the artists’ collaboration with Dior’s Creative Director, Maria Grazia Chiuri. One of the most highly anticipated featurettes spotlights French artist Eva Jospin.

Jospin recounts the story behind their collaboration at the Dior Autumn/Winter 2021-2022 Haute Couture show. She installed a forty-meter long, hand-embroidered immersive gallery of her own design inspired by Maria Grazia Chiuri and the skills of the Chanakya ateliers and the Chanakya School of Craft in India. 

In that podcast, Jospin discusses the symbolism in the piece, the links between both Parisian and Roman cultures through art, and own Jospin’s experience working with embroidery.

For folks less interested in art, Felicity Jones discusses her thoughts regarding her place as a woman in the film industry through Dior Talks’ Feminism series. She talks about her rejection of all-male environments, women she idolises, and how being dressed in garments by Maria Grazia Chiuri distinguished her feelings of being objectified.

Particularly with Maria’s designs, you feel there’s an ease to wearing them as well. There’s an appreciation of pragmatism that goes into the design, that you feel cool, that you don’t feel like a doll.

The next episode on September 21 will be on the A.B.C Dior dedicated to the Lady Dior and Lady Diana. Dior Talks’ ‘Feminist Art’ is now available to stream.
