Christian Dior is the designer of dreams. Since the foundation of his House in 1946, consecrated by the New Look revolution, his visionary spirit has never ceased to magnify women all over the world. As the seasons go by, this exceptional heritage is reinvented by the creative passion, power and singular modernity of the various artistic directors who boldly perpetuate the magic of Dior, the excellence of its know-how and the beauty of its unique gesture.
Christian Dior Couture, the House of Dreams, is renowned for its French heritage and vibrant culture that sublimates unique know-how and explosive creativity through its “dream professions”. Rich in an exceptional heritage, with a community of more than 8,000 talents, our House today more than ever embodies the “House of Talents” of Christian Dior. Present in more than 40 countries, we transmit our know-how, audacity and excellence through the passion and creativity of our employees.
On the occasion of its Women@Dior mentoring programme – accompanying a new generation of women around the world – the House is unveiling this year its first online education platform, entitled “Women Leadership & Sustainability”, around the themes of gender equality and women’s leadership for a responsible future. This initiative highlights the crucial nature of education in imagining a more sustainable and more united world. Through the exchange of knowledge, this programme will enable young women to build a better future by developing their autonomy. On the occasion of World Youth Skills Day, Dior is supporting and joining the Global Coalition for Education, founded by UNESCO, by opening its Women@Dior programme to 100 talented young women students from Niger, Kenya, Ghana, Tanzania, Jamaica, Pakistan, the Philippines and Sri Lanka. This initiative, supported for the first time by a sewing house, gives the most vulnerable female students the opportunity to receive an inclusive education. A concrete commitment, with regard to societal issues, and in the context of the global health crisis.”
