Fashion can be feminist? A question that is heating up just all media. One that seems superfluous when the close look at the history of fashion in the first moment. Just think of the banishment of the hobble skirt and the liberation of the female body, jeans trousers and optical gender bending. Would there be not the eternal reproach of the soulless sell-out of a movement that deals happen in the core with more than surface. First there were Studios cautious references in detail, which flooded several walkways, then clear statements such as those by acne. Recent H & M with a deliberately emotionally charged campaign video in the pop-cultural #femalepower team filed himself.

And would she waived right now on their charisma and media power, on their long known love of pop culture, to cover one of the most important messages of our time in the world, then only I would put your forehead in worry. Rather, I ask myself: when we finally stop to wonder about statements of this kind? For me is Chiuris debut is a strong, at all levels.
In addition to the collection that wants to come out without stereotypes, also the front row was a celebration: Rihanna, Jennifer Lawrence, Carla Bruni, Kate Moss, and Bianca Jagger took there place, but also author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie himself. And something did Maria Grazia Chiuri right: before the show, she showed the important women behind the Kullissen again via Instagram. Namely that the daily fabric become dreams Potter in the Studio to meet:
