The Red Dress - the first conversation

The Red Dress is back at ACEArts Somerton until June 29th, 2024. The project, conceived by artist Kirstie Macleod, provides an artistic platform for women around the world to tell their personal stories through embroidery - and it's become a global phenomenon.

Constructed out of 87 pieces of burgundy silk dupion, the garment has been worked on by 367 women/girls, 11 men/boys and 2 non-binary artists from 51 countries.

Back in 2022, Jenna had the pleasure of chatting with Kirstie about The Red Dress, about how it was conceived, and about the journey that Kirstie and the contributing artisans have been on. You can hear that interview here by just pressing play.
