Balenciaga Deleted All Instagram Post and Makes a Statement

Balenciaga sent a message to express their support for Mahsa Amini by deleting all Instagram posts and paying tribute to her memory.

Cristóbal Balenciaga, a Spanish designer who created the upscale clothing company Balenciaga in 1919, is making a point by deleting all but one Instagram post in support of Iranian women.

The company published a white photo with the phrases Woman, Life, and Freedom written on it on Wednesday in both English and Persian language. “Balenciaga, Kering, and the Kering Foundation have consistently backed the struggle for women’s liberation and fundamental rights. In honour of Mahsa, we unite with all Iranian women, it stated in the caption.

Iranian woman Mahsa Amini, 22, was killed, and her passing shocked the nation. As a result of her violation of Iran’s severe hijab dress rule, she was detained by the sharia police and died there. Her passing provoked demonstrations by grieving women protesting repressive laws imposed on women in Iran and the remainder of the world. Many ladies have cut their hair in protest.

Iranian director Asghar Farhadi, a two-time Oscar winner, supported his fellow countrywomen. On September 25, he posted a video statement on Instagram calling on people all across the world to “stand in solidarity” with demonstrators. “They are looking for modest yet essential privileges that the government has deprived them for years,” he stated, applauding the “progressive and courageous women.”

Huda Kattan, an American makeup artist and founder of Huda Beauty, has also spoken out about the subject. As she said that her heart is with all the courageous women fighting for their freedom to speak for themselves around the globe, whether or not they are wearing a hijab. She added that it has been painful to watch women’s rights to wear the hijab violated, and now it’s happening that women are being killed for not donning it. Everything here is persecution, she penned on Instagram.

According to a statement made on Sunday by the Iran Human Rights Association, at least 92 individuals have died as a result of Iran’s harsh response to rallies spearheaded by women. To end protests that have been going on for more than two weeks, Iranian security officers were stationed at universities in multiple locations on Wednesday.
