Ode to women’s empowerment & diversity
The location is steeped in history. The Parvis des droits de l’homme is the very place where, in 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted at Palais de Chaillot. The cast will be diverse and inclusive. The exceptional dance performance and scenography will transcribe a vision of today’s feminism through freedom of movement.
“This year’s ‘Le Défilé’ will be a remarkable platform for women’s empowerment, conveying a strong message of self-worth and disrupting the conventions of typical runway shows by inviting the public to join the Stand Up Against Street Harassment program. Celebrating our feminine and feminist vision, the show will be a rallying cry for all women (and also men) who share these convictions. I am proud to unite our global family of inspirational spokespeople in celebration of these values.”
Delphine Viguier-Hovasse, Global Brand President, L’Oréal Paris
The fourth edition of “Le Défilé L’Oréal Paris” will bring together a diverse and inclusive lineup of international spokespeople. As well as iconic, purposeful fashion houses like Balmain and Elie Saab, and talented emerging designers such as Koché and Ester Manas.
Open to everyone, this public outdoor runway show will be broadcast across more than 30 countries, making a powerful statement for feminism and self-worth—and resonating strongly with our iconic slogan, “Because you’re worth it,” which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.
