We all know that ‘patchwork’ use up scraps of fabric or clothing to make quilts and other items, this in turn helps us to be sustainable.
Dior, one of the world’s top designer and fashion house, was inspired by patchwork clothing in the 1960’s and 1970’s, as well as using their archive to create their Autumn 18/19 collection.
Patchwork, by its very nature, is a technique overflowing with memory and association. This Autumn-Winter 2018-2019 dress is no different. Inspired by the seminal feminist book 'The Subversive Stitch', with its focus on textile crafts as a means of expression for women, #MariaGraziaChiuri called on the supreme savoir-faire of the Dior atelier to piece together a colorful jigsaw of fabrics inspired by fabrics from the House's storied heritage. ⠀ #DiorAW18 #DiorSavoirFaire⠀ © Sophie Carre
New for Autumn-Winter 2018-2019, the ‘Saddle’ bag, a revamped Dior icon, makes a triumphant return in exciting fresh incarnations designed by #MariaGraziaChiuri! Here, patchworks of fabrics culled from the House’s heritage become colorful little symbolic windows on the world. A world that looks all the better through red or orange or blue or rose-tinted sunglasses! © @JasonLloydEvans
