Anna Wintour would love to see tap dancers perform at a fashion show one day.
The fashion journalist, who has served as editor-in-chief of U.S. Vogue since 1988, is one of the most important figures in the industry.
But while Wintour has been to hundreds of shows over the years, she is yet to witness a spectacle featuring her favourite dance style.
“I was not at this particular show but my more experienced colleagues tell me that a very early Viktor & Rolf collection featured tap dancers,” she said in an interview for her Go Ask Anna video series when asked by Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing what she would like to see at a fashion event. “And since I really, really love tap dancing I would love a designer in his or her show to incorporate nothing but tap dancing.”
Wintour went on to discuss some of her highlights from the recent Fashion Month, and named shell necklaces and hats as two of her top picks.
“My favourite accessory was the shells at Prada. First of all because they were beautiful. Secondly, Miuccia (Prada, creative director) told me they were based on the pearls she wears all the time herself,” the 69-year-old shared. “So, that felt very personal and real to me. And then, because I love gardens, I love the hats (milliner) Stephen Jones did for the Dior show.”
Elsewhere in the chat, Givenchy designer Clare Waight Keller asked Wintour if she has ever lost her suitcase while travelling to Paris Fashion Week and what she did on arrival.
“I have lost my suitcase on countless occasions. But fortunately, I have many friends in Paris that are designers. So, I call them up,” she smiled.
