J. Lo and Quinta Brunson among the stars of the Dior Haute Couture show in Paris

The French art museum Musée Rodin was filled with mosaic artwork from some of the best-known painting series by American artist Faith Ringgold, Free woman now And Woman, free yourself, Monday. The museum was the setting for Dior’s Fall/Winter 2024 Haute Couture show in Paris.

The show’s backdrop included political posters challenging the way African American and gender identity have been represented around the world, as well as a nod to the upcoming 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games which will have take place next month.

Upon entering the space, guests were greeted by a recreation of Ringgold’s LA Subway Commission mosaics hanging on the walls. The work, featuring 32 life-size athletes in action, was created by Chanakya Workshops and the Chanakya School of Craft. Dior’s creative director for women’s and high fashion, Maria Grazia Chiuri, bridges the gap between fashion and sports using Ringgold’s work.

The show featured a slew of celebrities, 52 in total, including Jennifer Lopez and Quinta Bronson, as well as front-row guests Doja Cat, Kelly Rutherford, Blackpink’s Jisoo and Heart Evangelista. As Salt burn Star Rosamund Pike had her photo taken in front of the mosaic artwork, with the actress grabbing her mobile phone to take a photo of the artwork in front of her.

For Chiuri, it was important to pay tribute to athletes from different generations who endured prejudice and fought for equality for all in competitive sporting events.

The creative director used jersey, an uncommon fabric choice for couture, to tell the story of the season. The collection also featured pleating, embroidery and draping, the latter used as a reference to classical statuary. The one-shoulder goddess dress was present in almost every look in the collection.

Chiuri sought to combine sportswear and couture. “It is classicism, rebellion, collective energy and, above all, the political value of the female body,” Dior specifies in its notes.
