Dior makes a Bold Statement with Chimamanda Adichie’s “We Should All Be Feminists” at Paris Fashion Week



Chimamanda AdichieChimamanda Adichie’s famous line “We Should All Be Feminists” made an appearance at the Paris Fashion Week as Christian Dior put the words on a white tee with a model walking the runway.

It was a bold and direct statement by Maria Grazia Chiuri, Dior’s first-ever female creative director. Maria Grazia Chiuri became the creative director at Dior in July, the first female in the brand’s 70-year history.

Will you rock the tee?


The event was also attended by quite a number of celebrities including Chimamanda Adichie herself, Kate Moss, Rihanna, Karlie Kloss, Jennifer Lawrence and more.

      Since we’re approaching the end of the year, I suppose I can express my hope that we leave behind “Yassssssssssssssss!!!!!” and “slay” in 2016.

      Personally, find them irritating. Anyways, considering how the fashion world “allegedly” treats its female models, the irony is strong.

    I hope Maria Grazia Chiuri will pay Chimamanda Adichie for using her slogan, if it was the other way round. we will hear about court cases bordering on copyright law. Front row view is nice but coming from Dior. I can bet you those tees will cost $$$

    Yes, slogans are intellectual property and certain can be trademarked and protected by law e.g. Just Do It (Nike) and Got Milk? (the Dairy Association.)
