Karl Lagerfeld: feminism on the catwalk

"Ladies First", "We can match the macho", "Be your own stylist", "History is her story", "Be different"? These slogans were heard today at the Paris Fashion Week. But not about protesters who rant against the fashion circus, but during Chanel's fashion show? on the catwalk.

All-rounder Karl Lagerfeld, as always, came up with something very special for the fashion house Chanel show. Each season, he puts the fashion industry not only by his designs, but also by his productions of shows in enthusiasm: "Bravo!", "How he came back to it ?!", "Melting icebergs!", "A fashion show as an art gallery!" , "A Chanel supermarket!", "That's unbeatable!" Lagerfeld manages every season to surprise the industry with a new brainwave.

During Paris Fashion Week's Spring / Summer 2015 shows, it was a fashion show on an artificially staged street that ended in a demonstration of feminism. The models carried signs and banners with feminist slogans over the catwalk, shouting slogans and raising their fists. In the middle of a single man? Karl Lagerfeld's model muse Baptiste Giabiconi? Bearing a sign saying "He for She," an allusion to Emma Watson's feminist campaign.

The fashion designer extraordinaire - despite his 80 years - once again managed to hit the zeitgeist. Feminism is not only a buzzword, but a fad? a mass phenomenon, but at the same time chic and "in vogue".
