Chimamanda Adichie Inspired Dior’s Collection At Paris Fashion Week


October 4, 2016

Our very own Nigerian writer and novelist, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is doing bigger things on the international scene.

No, Chimamanda did not feature in a hit single. This time around, she inspired Maria Grazia Chiuri’s Dior collection at Paris Fashion Week.

The 2017 spring collection included these awesome T-shirts with bold statements supporting the feminist movement; an excerpt of Chimamanda’s famous Tedx Speech back in 2013.

Aunty Chi Chi was of course present at the fashion show, and she was there to slay! Just look at those shoes *swoon*!

Her Tedx speech which was later developed into a book-length essay was so powerful that Beyonce featured it in her Grammy nominated hit single ‘Flawless’.

Chimamanda’s speech boasts of over 3 million views on Youtube, and was used to teach Swedish students about feminism in 2015. Who else can’t wait to see where this awesome speech takes her next?
