Questions of femininity, feminism and lived female experiences have piqued Maria Grazia Chiuri’s interest since her very first show for Dior in 2016, when she sent T-shirts down the runway with ‘We Should All Be Feminists’ — after Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s seminal work — emblazoned across the chest.

It’s personal; Chiuri was (and continues to be) the first woman in the Maison’s history to ascend to the position of Creative Director. It’s also enduring, as the Dior Autumn/Winter 2021 show will attest to.

In anticipation of the newest Dior Autumn/Winter presentation, Chiuri commissioned teaser work from five female illustrators — as follows: Aisha Madu, Bárbara Cerro, Noriko Okaku, Marion Fayolle and Teresa Cherubini — each presenting their own interpretations of what femininity means to them through short animated features. A timely release, considering the show’s debut, 8 March, is International Women’s Day.

All will be revealed here — and online on Dior — on 8 March at 9:30pm Hong Kong time.
