Maria Grazia Chiuri, the first female artistic director ofDioris backwith another feminist fashion statement. 

At the brand’s Paris Fashion Week show on Tuesday, model Sasha Pivovarova opened Dior’s spring 2018 collection wearing a striped shirt that reads, “Why have there been no great women artists?” 

Thequoteis the title of art historian Linda Nochlin’sgroundbreaking essayfrom 1971. According to Vogue,copies of the essaywere placed on every attendee’s seat at the show.

Last year, Chiuri marked her debut at Dior with a T-shirt that declared, “We should all be feminists,” which she took from the title of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s2014 bookandpopular Tedx talk

The T-shirt was a success, modeled by the likes ofJennifer LawrenceandRihanna,and aportion of the proceeds from the shirt went to Rihanna’s Clara Lionel Foundation. Though the shirt drew criticism forits hefty $710 price tag, we’re hoping Chiuri’s new feminist tee is a little more affordable.
