Violet Chachki Interview
Violet Chachki on Walking Moschino and the Importance of Queer Visibility
To call Violet Chachki a superstar is an understatement. The easiest way to describe her performance persona would be “drag queen,” but anyone who’s watched RuPaul’s Drag Race—a competition she won in the show’s seventh season—or seen her in real life, knows that Chachki is part-model, part-performer, part-aerialist, part-artist, part-style muse . . . the list goes on. So let’s put it simply: Violet Chachki is the kind of person that can suck the air out of a room when she enters it.
Fashion is taking note of her charisma (and uniqueness, and nerve, and talent) too. Last week she attended the Prada Fall 2018 men’s show in Milan, and later closed Moschino’s Fall 2018 menswear and women’s Pre-Fall show in Jeremy Scott’s “tandem tux.” Here, Chachki tells Vogue about her first fashion week runway appearance.
How did Moschino reach out about the show? Why did you say yes?
Jeremy has been a friend for a few years now. I attended the Moschino dinner at Art Basel and that’s when he asked me! I, of course, said yes immediately. I’ve been a fan of his work for a long time and I’ve always found Jeremy’s personal story refreshing and inspiring.
Obviously, you’re used to killing it on the runway—did walking at fashion week feel any different?
I think the process and the experience is slightly different, but the feeling is very similar. You have that surreal crazy excitement. It’s adrenaline and glamour all mixed into one. That’s what performing is for me, and modeling should always be performance. The biggest difference is I typically create my own fantasy; in fashion, you work to help realize someone else’s vision.
Do you want to walk more runway shows in the future?
Oh, of course! It’s an amazing experience getting to collaborate and seeing someone else’s process. I take so many mental notes from what I see backstage and at the fittings. It’s also incredibly rewarding to get to work with legends like Kabuki Starshine and Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele.
What did you like about your look?
What I liked most is what it symbolized. I was in a conjoined tuxedo jacket with nonbinary model Oslo Grace (who I think is going to be huge, by the way). For me, this look represents balance and strength for all gender nonconforming people. Much like Marlene Dietrich used the tuxedo to blur the lines of gender, I feel that’s what Jeremy was achieving as well. This highly glamorous, traditionally male garment joining two nonbinary folks to close the show—it was brilliant. My favorite two aesthetics are glamour and fetish, I almost always do one or the other, and so this show was everything I love. It was a perfect match!
Did you do your own makeup backstage?
The way we approached the beauty was that it was Violet in a Moschino world. We wanted it to look like me, but a softer, more refined version. Me and Kabuki worked very closely to get it just right. I would step in and do what was needed and vice versa. Again, collaborating is what I love most about fashion.
You have a great eye for fashion. What are some of the trends or silhouettes you’re into now?
I’m seeing feathers everywhere and I love it! To me feathers are such a high drag moment; it’s cute to see [them] go back into the mainstream.
The show’s message of a more fluid understanding of sexuality and gender was really poignant—as a drag performer why is this message important to you?
It felt so powerful to be there, especially in the current political climate. I’m so thankful to Jeremy and Moschino for giving queer people this visibility. I have a lot of young followers, and I try to instill a sense of strength for the next generation, because it’s not easy. To me that’s what the show was—strength! It’s very important to have visual representation, to show that queers are important, queers are powerful, queers are beautiful, queers are valid, and you can’t erase us.
