Hot on the heels of New York Fashion Week, some of the industry’s most well-known figures are using their platform to send a strong political message.
W Magazine has teamed up with fashion industry heavyweights, including Adriana Lima, Winnie Harlow and Diane von Furstenberg for a new viral video titled “I Am An Immigrant.” The common thread? All of the faces featured in the video are immigrants to the United States.
The video is intended as a “united and defiant” stand against President Donald Trump’s travel ban — the latest protest of the U.S. government’s anti-immigrant policies. Throughout New York Fashion Week, other political statements ranged from the “Feminist AF” shirts given to front-row guests at Jonathan Simkhai’s show to a model walking in Christian Siriano’s show wearing a shirt that read “People Are People”.
Last month, ET Canada’s Sangita Patel spoke to several stars at the Screen Actors Guild Awards about Trump’s immigrant ban. Watch the video below for more.
