The fashion industry reacts to the current political climate

If you’re not aware about the current political situation in America, you’re probably living under a rock. Luckily, the fashion industry is here to remind us that we’re living in a strange era and that it needs to change. From bold pieces with powerful messages to polical-themed runway shows, designers like Jeremy Scott (Moschino) and Prabal Gurung (just to name those ones) made sure to get their message across. As for Balenciaga’s, Demna Gvasalia got the inspiration for the FW17 mens collection from Bernie Sanders, the leader of the Democrat party. It is not the first time fashion took a political stance, but this season designers and influencers did not hold back, either on the streets or on the catwalk.

Fashion is often seen as a superficial thing, but it’s amazing that you can express your beliefs and opinions by simply wearing a piece of clothing. Images speak louder than words they say, so don’t be afraid to wear what you wanna say!
