I recently wrapped up what is now basically known as “fashion month” here in New York City. I started with the men’s week, which is a fairly newer installation in the process. Men’s and women’s used to showcase side-by-side, but curators in the past couple of years have decided to separate menswear, giving those designers their own time to shine! You can imagine the excitement from menswear enthusiasts like myself. However this season we saw something even more interesting then your usual collections. A lot of designers used this opportunity to say something more with their work. Given all the political controversy in this country currently, a few designers used this as a chance to take a stand against the current administration and give voice to those that currently need it. I think that art and politics have a special bond and I really enjoyed watching artists like Robert James and Ricardo Seco use their work to stand up for something they believe in.
