The house of Dior unveils Dior Talks, a series of podcasts in the form of conversations, inviting artists, collaborators and friends of the House to express themselves freely by discussing the subjects that compel them, their output and the challenges of tomorrow, from the role of art to the key stages of feminism. A new way to get a fresh perspective, to immerse oneself in something different, to inquire and inspire, discover and dream.
