La Mode AfriWoman Forum and Dinner


At the 2019 Spring couture show, Christian Dior handed her style to us on a big platter.

One of the designers, who made her entrance in ready-to-wear at Dior with her We Should All Be Feminists slogan T-shirts, performed the breathtaking leap of inviting Mimbre, London’s all-women troupe of circus acrobats, to do their astonishing thing in the Dior big top at the Musée Rodin.

The fashion show had women stand on othetr women shoulders,they strode along the walkways, held high and visible from every angle, breaking gender barriers and breaking hearts with the symbolism of so much female support: She ain’t heavy—she’s my sister. . . . Chiuri is brilliant at pulling off these contemporary performance stunts: She did it by bringing in the Tel Aviv–based choreographer Sharon Eyal and members of her company for Spring 2019, and an eight-woman band of female rodeo stars from Mexico for Resort 2019.
