The state of the States is a recurring theme worldwide, with designers taking a political stand in their collections being shown this month. With New York, London, and Milan under our belts, it seems that human rights are on everyone’s minds this fashion cycle.

Prabal Gurung created tee shirts inspired by the issues of the Women’s Marches, and hopes to be able to allow purchasers a choice of which charity the proceeds from their shirt will support. An immigrant himself, Gurung feels he owes it to the country that gave him so many opportunities, to use his voice to promote justice.

One of the most meaningful statements came from Missoni, who sent all of the models down the runway for the finale, wearing pink pussy hats, which were also the gift left on editors and buyers seats at the show. Designer Angela Missoni took a moment to address the crowd, stating. “There is a bond between us that will keep us strong and safe. The bond that unites all those who respect human rights. Let’s show the world that the fashion community is united and fearless!”

This activism started last season, with Maria Grazia Chiuri notably showing a feminist statement tee shirt with an embellished skirt at Dior.

We expect to see the trend continue to develop as Paris Fashion Week begins, and even more designers choose to use thier platforms to entice, as well as incite us to take action.

Colorful stripes were all over the catwalks for Spring 2016, and they continue to be prominent in the pre-fall collections as well. There is something cheerful and optimistic about these multicolored stripes that make us dream of the warmer weather ahead.
