The exceptional decor for the Dior autumn-winter 2021-2022 haute couture show, a monumental installation created by Eva Jospin for Dior –  in the heart of the Rodin Museum in Paris –  will be open to the public from July 6th to 11th, 2021. Entitled Chambre de Soie (Silk Room), this unique oeuvre, the result of a long-term process involving a dialogue with several voices, nods both to the Indian-inspired Embroidery Room at the Palazzo Colonna in Rome and to Virginia Woolf’s feminist manifesto A Room of One's Own*.

Measuring forty meters long, this immersive gallery, entirely hand-embroidered – by the virtuoso artisans of the Chanakya workshop and the Chanakya School of Craft in Mumbai, based on a unique design by the French artist – exalts the notion of collective energy dear to Maria Grazia Chiuri. The textile architecture, covering 350 square meters, unfurls like an ode to the precious savoir-faire and cultures of the world, at the intersection of art and haute couture.
