Made in Nigeria: Chimamanda Adichie Takes Fashion Patriotism to Dior’s Cruise Show

By  | 

Award winning writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, who is one of Christian Dior’s inspiration for Spring/Summer 2017, was yesterday spotted at the label’s Cruise Collection for the Resort Season. Unlike many others who would have consented to wear Dior as a sign of respect and belonging, Chimamanda who has been up and about with her “Project Wear Nigeria”, was spotted in a figure hugging piece made out of Lace and Ankara. This is clear sign that the Nigerian activist took her “PWN” to Las Virgenes Canyon above Los Angeles, where Dior showed its Cruise 2018 offering.

Now That’s how you do Patriotism with a dose of chic. Point of correction Suzy Menkes, Its Chimamanda not Chimamanola and it’s also “We Should All Be Feminist” not “We Are All Feminists”
