Maria Grazia Chiuri brings feminism back at Dior AW19 show

Feb 27, 2019

The Dior's AW19 show that took place yesterday in Paris was another iconic one to remember. Artistic/Creative Director Maria Grazia Chiuri never fails to surprise us with her creations and daring style. Inspired by the 1950s and the character of Princess Margaret, Teddy Girls make a comeback this season and stand for Dior's feminist vision of the future. The modern looks include tartan skirts, patent coat, sharp grey trousers, bucket hats and pointed flats.   

Spotted on the runway and on supermodel Karlie Kloss, the most talked about feminist T-shirt finally returns after the SS17 show. Reading "Sisterhood is Powerful" (1970), "Sisterhood is Global" (1984), and "Sisterhood is Forever" (2003) on silkscreened T-shirts, the slogans are borrowed from the international women's movement anthology by American feminist poet Robin Morgan. 

As Dior's first woman creative director, Maria Grazia Chiuri has been using her role to spread empowering feminist messages of equality through her creations.

88-year-old Italian artist Bianca Pucciarelli Menna, better known by her male alter ego Tomaso Binga, was invited to create the AW19 set. The show's scenography featured naked letter-like images that Binga, who adopted this name to overcome the misogynistic obstacles of the art world in the 1960s, photographed herself, with each letter representing a different woman. 

In order to celebrate the AW19 Ready-To-Wear collection, Dior invited front-row celebrities such as Karlie Kloss, Cara Delevingne, Jennifer Lawerence, Gemma Arterton, Kat Graham, Freya Mavor, Angelababy, Olivia Palermo, Suzy Bae and more to attend the show at the Musée Rodin.
