Fashion Industry Takes A Jab At President Trump By Doing This

Nowadays with the increase in social media usage and advancements in technology it is difficult to avoid social media posts involving politics and fashion trends. This past fashion week, many of the shows took a political stance mostly against President Donald Trump.

The increasing disdain for the President Trump has been very clear. Trump adversaries say their unhappiness with the Trump Administration stems from his xenophobic tweets, racist policies and sexist actions. The stressful situation was further strained by Trump's "Muslim-ban" and recent reversal of President Obama's transgender protection act.

In one show the models wore t-shirts and underwear with sayings such as, "Not my president," "We are all immigrants" and "F**ck Your Wall." Although not every designer took to making such a loud statement. Many designers joined the 'Tied Together' movement. People who join the movement show their solidarity with people of different races, creeds and cultures by wearing a white bandana.

Designers to partake included Tommy Hilfiger, Thakoon, Prabal Gurung,Diane von Furstenberg and Phillip Lim. Many models joined the movement by wearing the bandanas when they were off-duty going from show to show.

The movement originated on the Business of Fashion website. On the website the founder and Editor in Chief, Imran Amed explained the 'Tied Together' movement by saying, "In light of the current uncertainties and turmoil around the world, The Business of Fashion invites the fashion industry to stand together and make a clear statement of solidarity, unity and inclusiveness. This is not a political statement, it is a positive statement in support of humanity during a time of turmoil and fear in many nations around the world. We aim to start a global movement within the fashion industry to demonstrate the power of unity and inclusivity, and encourage fashion enthusiasts and people outside the industry to join. Wear a white bandana as a sign to the world that you believe in the common bonds of humankind — regardless of race, sexuality, gender or religion."
