Feb 1 2017



After eight days of fall/winter New York Fashion Week, the most prominent trend—pervading both the runways and streets—has been social and political activism. To outsiders, New York Fashion Week may seem trivial in a time of more pressing news, but beyond being an escape, it’s a representation of how art can comment on social and political issues. Not only did the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) officially partner with Planned Parenthood to raise awareness with a statement pin—but several designers shaped their collections and shows in response to the current political climate.
Many designers using slogan t-shirts to say their political activism mind to the public. These designers include Jonathan Simkhai, Ryan Lobo and Ramon Martin, and Prabal Gurung, and some other brands.
