 There’s a protest on the catwalk!


Karl Lagerfeld is known for being the designer for major labels including Chanel, Chloe and Fendi. The 81-year-old is well-known for his distinctive fashion sense of leather gloves and occasional suits, he is also well recognised by his white hair which he ties in a ponytail.

Last season the German born designer created a catwalk to remember. It was the most talked about fashion show as Lagerfeld turned the catwalk into a shopping isle for the models, which had designer groceries on display.

However this season’s show has definitely stood out from the rest as Lagerfield staged a statement for feminism with models carrying placards with slogans like ‘Boys should get pregnant too.’ The SS15 show saw  models walking down the catwalk which was transformed to look like the streets of Paris with known faces including Malaika Firth (who said she’d ‘had so much fun’) at the show strutting down the catwalk holding banners and posters to represent Lagerfeld’s strong believes of feminism.

Other Top models such as Georgia May Jagger, Kendall Jenner and Alexa Chung participated in the catwalk protest. The clothes worn by the models expressed ideas of masculinity as the models wore long line blazers, oversized trousers and brogues. Peace signs was also dominant amongst the designs.

The leader of the protest just happened to be Lagerfeld’s favourite British model Cara Delevingne.

Check out some of these shots captured on Instagram during the show.
