For this show, Maria Grazia Chiuri, Creative Director of Dior women’s lines, was inspired in particular by Joséphine Baker, the African-American singer and dancer who left the United States in the mid-1920s for a multi-creative Paris. Iconic, glamorous and committed, she embodies the modernity of those years, the mixing of cultures and shared experiences that notably animated the vibrant world of cabaret, from New York to the City of Light. Delicate pieces, emblematic of Dior’s exceptional savoir-faire, come to life in a scenographic narrative – specially envisioned by artist Mickalene Thomas – composed of giant portraits of extraordinary personalities symbolizing a new pantheon of women.
