Is Politics Something “à la Mode”?

NYFW is now over and we have spotted one major trend: politics. Unexpected? Not really!

The world has recently been living a real political turmoil, a turmoil which climax was probably the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States. As people fear for the dismantling of democracy, some of them chose to advocate for their fundamental rights and liberties. Nothing of an unprecedented situation…

However, what appears to be more original is fashion’s recent implication in these political matters. Even if some designers had already voiced their claims, what was really peculiar here was the generalisation of the political concern. Raf Simons coined: “When you have a voice, you should use it”, and this seems to epitomise the spirit of the designers for NYFW this season. NYFW was hence the occasion for designers to display rather unequivocal political point of views, but always sticking to their aesthetic identity.
