The #MeToo founder is now in fashion’s front row

Tarana Burke, founder of the #MeToo movement, just got her Cinderella fashion moment.

Designer Prabal Gurung invited her to sit front row — next to Huma Abedin, Laverne Cox and Cardi B — at his Sunday-night catwalk.

“This is my first show!” Burke told The Post. “I have grown up reading Vogue and loving fashion, so to be at a show is really amazing for me.”

Prabal, who’s been dubbed the “wokest” designer in fashion, personally invited the activist.

“I got a call — would you like to go to this?” Burke told us. “And I was like, ‘Are you kidding me? Of course I would! It’s really exciting.’”

As Abedin beamed, Burke praised the designer for his vocal advocacy: “He’s very aware of what’s happening in the world — it’s great to have people in fashion show support for those issues. Any industry that has as many women as are in fashion is clearly going to have some issues connected to #MeToo. I think the fashion world sees this and is paying attention.”

With that, she was soon enveloped in a pungent vape cloud from lovebird rappers Cardi B and Offset — the show was about to begin.
