Designers Got Political at Fashion Week
For Creative Director Maria Grazia Chiuri's first Dior collection, she sent feminist graphic tees down the runway and opened up a brand-new political conversation. Meanwhile, at NYFW, a "F*ck Trump dress" was revealed, Opening Ceremony urged showgoers to vote, and Alice + Olivia designer Stacey Bendet wore an "I'm With Her" skirt to her own presentation. Finally, at London Fashion Week, designer Ashish Gupta presented his line in a t-shirt that read "Immigrant." Initially a response to the Brexit, the piece was widely requested and made shoppable following the US election and Donald Trump's order to "build a wall."
