In honor of International Women’s Day, a look at 4 famous fashion designers have spoken out for women’s rights and gender equality.
Maria Grazia Chiuri is the first woman heading the creative part of the Dior house. She showed some t-shirts that read “We Should Be All Feminists” during the 2017 Fashion Week. The writing is the title of an essay by feminist writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.
Sometimes from streets to catwalk, it’s a short road.
Last year, Angela Missoni gave cat-eared pink hats to models and attendees during her show. She asked the world of fashion to be united in the battle for women’s rights. In other words, the”pussyhat” has then become the symbol of the Women’s March worldwide against the sexism of Donald Trump.
Luisa Spagnoli was an innovator for women’s labor rights, introducing schools and kindergartens to help the workers to reconcile commitments, set up literacy courses during working hours and introducing in her factories the right to breastfeeding and maternity paid leave.
Miuccia Prada is one of the Made in Italy queens and she has a feminist activist’s past. For the Spring Summer 2014 collection, for example, she commissioned to young mexican mural artists to create large murals for the exhibition space. The designer’s desire was “represent the essence of femininity”, to pay tribute to a strong and combative woman. The show was a sophisticated manifesto of feminist intensity.
