Fashion Gets Political

There is a huge shift in the world, you can feel everyone becoming more and more aware of politics as it starts to effect nearly everything people believe in. Fashion has long shown a sign of the political times when the 70’s saw more free flowing dresses, crop tops and burning of the bra’s, in resistance to stricter more tailored fashion of the 60’s. To the punk revolution of the 80’s who’s youth were frustrated with conservatism, the establishment and materialism, where it was fashionable to literally repell fashion and wear torn apart cloths, band tees and ripped denim to make a statement. As designer Thakoon Panichgul said “Fashion is a sponge in terms of what’s happening in culture.”

This year we have seen a massive influence of politics in designers collections , and there seems to be no slowing down. From Daniel W Fletcher’s ‘STAY’ campaign around Brexit to Dior’s Feminist shirts, politics and human rights are now more important then ever, and continues to dictate the fashion industry.
