Why Fashion Has Every Right To Be Political Right Now
February 22, 2017
"Is it any surprise that fashion designers have become politically-motivated in the current political climate? It shouldn't. At its core, theirs is a world about identity and self-expression, and so there's no time like the present for designers and models and editors to speak out about the ideals and progressive causes they have always embraced and defended."
"The topic of politics was unmissable during this past New York Fashion Week. It was on the runway in the form of the obvious—political slogans adorning clothing in the collections of Public School, Prabal Gurung, Jonathan Simkhai, Christian Siriano, and the CFDA's Planned Parenthood campaign, among others—or the slightly more nuanced—the political considerations in the clothes shown at Calvin Klein, Gypsy Sport and even Jeremy Scott."
