Her book ‘Threads of Life: A History of the World Through the Eye of a Needle’ was the spark for the Dior Autumn-Winter 2021-2022 Haute Couture collection by Maria Grazia Chiuri. And here Clare Hunter talks about the outsized importance of the humble craft of sewing throughout history as a visual language, a personal expression of place and identity, and a way of connecting people and of sharing ideas and influence around the world.
