Dior collaborates with African fabric studio Uniwax, Netflix débuts The Politician, plus more fashion and culture news
For Dior’s cruise 2020 collection, which débuted on runways in Morocco this past April, the fashion house announced a partnership with Uniwax, a fabric studio based in Ivory Coast. One of the last of its kind, the atelier produces intricate wax-print fabrics made from start to finish in Africa. Uniwax’s artisans were given total creative liberty with Dior’s iconography, resulting in new twists on the familiar tarot themes and toile de Jouy, all bearing the label Édition Spéciale Christian Dior–uniwax.
