STATEMENT for my protest of the @gucci show ✊? MENTAL HEALTH IS NOT FASHION

A post shared by YaYa Bones (@ayeshatanjones) on

Uniforms, utilitarian clothes, normative dress, including straitjackets, were included in the #GucciSS20 fashion show as the most extreme version of a uniform dictated by society and those who control it. These clothes were a statement for the fashion show and will not be sold. @alessandro_michele designed these blank-styled clothes to represent how through fashion, power is exercised over life, to eliminate self-expression. This power prescribes social norms, classifying and curbing identity. The Creative Director’s antidote is seen in the Gucci Spring Summer 2020 lineup of 89 looks, he has designed a collection that conveys fashion as a way to allow people to walk through fields of possibilities, cultivate beauty, make diversity sacrosanct and celebrate the self in expression and identity. #AlessandroMichele

A post shared by Gucci (@gucci) on

A non-binary musician artist also known as YaYa Bones, Ayesha Tan Jones took the audience by surprise on the runway when she raised her palms to reveal the message, “mental health is not fashion.” After the show, the model took to social media to explain the unplanned protest that, “as an artist and model who has experienced my own struggles with mental health, it is hurtful and insensitive for a major fashion house such as Gucci to use this imagery as a concept for a fleeting fashion moment.”

FASHION = ECOCIDE⁠ ⁠ Join us on Tuesday 17th September for a funeral procession starting at Trafalgar Square at 5pm and ending at 180 The Strand, the main venue for London Fashion Week. Click link in bio for details. ⁠ ⁠ This fashion week, we’ve asked the industry to use culture, creativity and influence to TELL THE TRUTH of this crisis. Save life on earth not business as usual. ⁠ ⁠ Now, as fashion week comes to a close, let’s put business as usual and this toxic system that’s killing us and the planet to rest. Let’s grieve for all that is lost and that will be lost due to climate and ecological collapse. ⁠ ⁠ London Fashion Week R.I.P. ⁠ ⁠ This is not the end of creativity but the start of a radical transformation. ⁠ ⁠ #BEYONDFASHION #LFWRIP #CLIMATEEMERGENCY ⁠

Stepping in to London Fashion Week like …. (now there is a little story to go with this clip, in the first opening ‘finale’ of Marc’s show Gigi’s heel broke – if you see images from the first passage she has thigh high silver socks and white leather mules, and since we were at the other end of the armoury there wasn’t much we could do other than either fake a non broken heel or rip off her socks and shoes and send her out barefoot, which we did, and was all the more natural for it. Gigi and all the people from the show thank you all so much for being so patient, beautiful and inspiring and also Stephen Galloway for your fantastic choreography). Dream a little Dream ?

With the supermodel’s natural and sexy strut on Marc Jacobs’ runway, guests didn’t realize Gigi Hadid being barefoot was actually an accident until stylist Katie Grand revealed the behind story on an Instagram post. “In the first opening ‘finale’ of Marc’s show Gigi’s heel broke – if you see images from the first passage she has thigh high silver socks and white leather mules,” Grand explained. Instead of replacing the mules with another pair of shoes, the stylist believed the look would be more natural without shoes at all.

Rihanna debuts her second Savage x Fenty show.

Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty show, taking place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, featured star-studded performances by Halsey, Big Sean, Migos, Tierra Whack and Normani. Unlike last season, guests were asked to leave their phones and cameras outside as the show is slated to air on Amazon Prime Video on September 20. With celebrities taking to social media to comment on the show, fans are more than excited to peep what went down that night in New York.
