PARIS (Reuters) – A lady holding a banner reading “We are all fashion victims” infiltrated the catwalk at Christian Dior’s program in Paris on Tuesday – strolling the runway so calmly that it appeared in the beginning to be part of the event.
The protester was acting in the name of Termination Rebellion, an activist movement that intends to highlight the threats presented by climate modification. The act was suggested to knock “the effect of the fashion industry on the environment and society”, a spokesman for the motion in France stated.
Strolling previous visitors consisting of “Game of Thrones” starlet Maisie Williams and the billionaire employer of Dior parent LVMH Bernard Arnault in the front row, the lady walked towards photographers after models had actually left the runway.
She left the scene without anyone challenging her and leaving some people confused over whether it was a stunt or part of the program.
Dior’s womenswear collections are created by Maria Grazia Chiuri, who has actually often introduced logos into her collection as well as feminist statements on Tee shirts and on set. Dior declined to comment even more.
Extinction Disobedience, which has actually led demonstrations at London’s Style Week considering that February 2019, started a campaign today highlighting the waste produced by the market.
