Myriam Chalek’s #MeToo Fashion Show Meshes Fashion & Activism

By Posted on 0 1 m read

The #MeToo Movement did not miss a beat during this year’s New York Fashion Week. On February 9th, the movement took center stage as women worked the runway and told their stories of sexual assault.

8 women walked the runway in their threads and then came back out handcuffed to men wearing pig masks. This imagery served as a statement and commanded the attention of the crowd.

The fashion show was created by Myriam Chalek, a creative director of AmericanWardrobe.com. Survivor, Alicia Kozakiewicz gained international attention in 2002 after she was abducted by a 38-year-old man that pretended to be her age that she had met online.

“I don’t think this fashion show is going to change things overnight, but if it can be a step further then I guess I’ve done my part. A woman who has been empowered is a woman who is unstoppable.” – Myriam Chalek
