Dior's Cruise 2020, a truly African collection


Over the years, designers have been borrowing or stealing from African cultural heritage, depending on how you see it. But times are changing! For her Cruise 2020 collection for Dior, Maria Grazia Chiuri has come up with a truly African concept. Working hand in hand with Ivorian designer Pathé'O and with women from Morocco's Atlas mountains, she has launched new wax print fabrics which are manufactured in Abidjan. The collection blends curiosity with empathy. FRANCE 24 takes a look.
