Ukranian Artist behind Dior’s Fall 2022 Couture Show Set Explains the Theme

Since Maria Grazia Chiuri took over the reins at the Dior, two things have remained constant: championing feminist ideas and collaborating with female artists. The Dior Fall 2022 Couture show was no different. Ever since Chiuri was introduced to the work of Ukrainian artist Olesia Trofymenko, she knew she wanted to work with her, and so she did. Together Chiuri, Trofymenko, and Dior’s artisans envisioned and brought to life an extraordinary set based on the theme of the collection – ‘The Tree of Life.’

In an exclusive video shared with Savoir Flair, Trofymenko walks us through every detail of the ideation process, including the exciting moment when she received a call from Dior. She reveals her discussion with Chiuri about creating an optimistic set design for the Dior Fall 2022 Couture show. Inspired by Ukrainian traditions and culture from different parts of the nation, Trofymenko submitted artistic sketches to the Dior team, which were then transformed as the exquisite set for the latest couture show. Trofymenko’s creative vision was brought to life on organic linen and jute fabrics with colorful embroideries by skilled Indian artisans who share the cultural significance of the ‘Tree of Life.’
