This Paris Fashion Week was an iconic one for Maria Grazia Chiuri, the first female creative director of Christian Dior. The collection, for Spring/Summer 2017, marked her debut as head of the celebrated design house. While thrilled to be able to witness this important moment in fashion history, I couldn't mask my excitement about another aspect of the show: the fencing-inspired ensembles. As a member of the Yale Fencing Team, I cannot believe that the outfit that I put on every afternoon is in fact stylish. So no more making fun! See below for some off-strip fencing-inspired attire.
