14 Years. 380 Embroiderers. 51 Countries. Millions of stitches. 1 Dress.
A collaborative embroidery project, The Red Dress was conceived by British artist Kirstie Macleod as an artistic platform for women around the world, many of whom are vulnerable and live in poverty, to tell their personal stories through embroidery. The dress, which has toured the globe since 2009, features contributions from 380 artists from 51 countries and has become a representation of border-defying unity and self-expression.
The Red Dress is made possible by the generosity of our sponsors.
