Janaye Furman makes history with Louis Vuitton

Fri, Oct. 6, 2017
CAIRO – 6 October, 2017: Louis Vuitton was the closing show of Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday, but that is not the news. Louis Vuitton made history this year by casting black model Janaye Furman to open its show for the first time ever; becoming the first black model to open a Louis Vuitton show.

Furman expressed her experience through Instagram; “This is such an incredible and unbelievable moment! Not only for my first opening show to be Louis Vuitton but to make history as the first African American girl to open LV?”

What a blessing!! Wow! This is such an incredible and unbelievable moment! Not only for my first opening show to be Louis Vuitton but to make history as the first African American girl to open LV?!! Thank you @nicolasghesquiere @louisvuitton, @marieameliesauve, @paulhanlonhair, @patmcgrathreal, @ashleybrokaw and thank you to absolutely every person involved. Thank you God and everyone for all of the amazing support! I'm so glad more women of color are rocking the runways. It's so important that we stand up for ourselves and make a difference in this world. I'm so happy I was able to tell this beautiful story.
