Anna Wintour to organise an event for Biden during PFW  An entry could cost up to $10,000

Fashion becomes political when it wants to be. And this year, Anna Wintour, the last true titan of Condè Nast, has taken a stand. During the upcoming Paris Fashion Week, scheduled from Monday, February 26th to Tuesday, March 5th, the global director of Vogue will organize a fundraising event for the Joe Biden campaign, the President of the United States running for re-election. Alongside Rufus Gifford, the chairman of the Biden-Harris administration, Wintour will host the reception in Paris on March 4th: although the location has not yet been disclosed to the public, we know that ticket prices range between $500 and $10,000.

The first time the CO of Condè Nast expressed her support for the current President of the United States was in 2020, when Biden first ran for head of state, but her support for the Democratic Party has remained for decades, having also been a big supporter of Hillary Clinton in 2016. In 2020, Wintour expressed her political position in a Vogue article, where she wrote about Joe Biden: «He is unmistakably a man of character and has so many qualities that we are in desperately short supply of in Washington right now: decency, honor, compassion, trustworthiness, and best of all experience». The event taking place in Paris during Fashion Week officially seals the partnership between the largest fashion publishing house in the world and the government of the President of the United States (should he be re-elected). With fundraising in full swing during Paris Fashion Week, Anna Wintour's support for Biden's campaign, organized by the Biden Victory Fund and the National Democratic Committee, not only confirms the political stance of the CO of Condè Nast but also that of the entire company. To devote attention to a political event in the same city where one of the most watched Fashion Weeks in the world is taking place can only mean one thing: years after the rise of the politically correct, now the fashion giants want to get serious.
