Fashion designers, models and other celebrities came together at New York Fashion Week to protest President Donald Trump’s (now pulled) executive action on immigration by participating in a video project for W magazine.
In the video, some of the biggest names in fashion — including designer Diane von Furstenberg, models Adriana Lima, Winnie Harlow and Doutzen Kroes, photographer Mario Sorrenti and W Editor-in-Chief Stefano Tonchi — stand in front of a camera and declare, “I am an immigrant.”
Designers and models have infused this winter’s New York Fashion Week with plenty of political statements as President Trump completes his first month in office.
For her show this week, Indonesian designer Anniesa Hasibuan casted exclusively immigrant models, with each wearing a light-gray hijab as they walked down the runway. Meanwhile, Mexican immigrant designer Raul Solis sent models down the runway wearing underwear bearing the slogans, “F*ck your wall” and “We are all human beings.”
