French luxury fashion house Christian Dior and Ewha Womans University in Seoul will sign a partnership agreement in late April to jointly train the next generation of female leaders, officials say.

“The detailed content of the partnership was fixed in March. But the ceremony will probably take place this month before the (Dior) parade,” an official from Ewha Womans University told the Korea Herald.

The fashion company approached the university, expressing interest in nurturing female leaders and the two parties agreed on a partnership, according to the official. The school hopes to provide internship opportunities and learning experiences to its students through this partnership, the official added.

The partnership is part of the fashion house’s Women@Dior mentorship program, launched in 2017. Dior has selected six Ewha students to participate in Women@Dior, according to the university.

As part of the cooperation between Dior and Ewha, the French luxury house is holding its Pre-Fall 2022 collection fashion show at the university on April 30, marking its first-ever show in the country, according to Dior.

The fashion house declined to say whether Jisoo of K-pop girl group Blackpink, Dior’s global ambassador, will attend the show, as local media speculated.
