Maria Grazia Chiuri presented her latest vision for Dior, returning to one of her favorite themes – feminism – while also tapping into Greek mythology for the Spring/Summer 2020 Haute Couture collection.
When finding inspiration for this collection, Maria Grazia Chiuri turned to one powerful quote of American feminist artist Judy Chicago: ‘’What If Women Ruled the World?’’.
Paying respect to Chicago’s work, Chiuri presented a collection that focused on femininity as a creative force. Revisiting the matriarchal themes she has explored through works like 1979’s ‘’The Dinner Party’’, the artist created a womb-inspired runway space called ‘’The Female Divine’’, and the collection mingled with the new work using a more conceptual interpretation. Inspired by classical goddesses, Chiuri showed a range of golden ensembles, decadent netted headpieces, and flowing silhouettes.
