Feminism is the latest trend in fashion and it’s awesome. Fashion brands are sending women’s rights messaging down the runway, printed on t-shirts to be captured by every photographer and shared by every major media outlet around the globe.
Designer Maria Grazia for Dior designed a shirt that read “We Should All Be Feminists,” and Natalie Portman and Rihanna helped to spread the message.
At New York Fashion Week, Jonathan Simkhai offered front-row attendees a “Feminist AF” shirt (awesome) and Prabal Gurung showed “The Future Is Female” and “Nevertheless She Persisted” tees in his powerful finale.
Tome is a brand made famous for its #madeforwomenbywomen DNA. The brand designs jackets bearing ‘The Advantages of Being a Woman Artist,” and designs with a full-figure woman in mind. Off the runway, designer Adam Lippes made signs that read, “Women’s Rights Are Human Rights” and “My Body, My Choice” and posed with them and his models on Instagram.
As Slate Magazine highlights, Vogue writer Eviana Hartman found that many fashion editors may not quite be ready for dressing for the resistance, based on an informal survey she conducted. But this is surely not the last we will see of the bold statement tees with the trend already trickling down to retailers.
