As mentioned in my previous post, people who can and want to make a statement in fashion are. It’s important to make a stand when one can, because people need to see and understand that there is nothing to be afraid of. Hate and all of it’s many forms stem from fear. If someone with the influence and freedom to make a powerful declaration do so, it matters. That’s why it melted my heart and brought feelings of hope when I saw Halima Aden walk in Max Mara, Alberta Ferretti and Yeezy’s shows. Seeing her rock her headscarf to match the many beautiful ensembles made my heart swell. I do know that fashion is trying to appeal to the modest market, so by being inclusive you open yourself up to a whole new world of profit, but the fact that the designer was not scared to take a chance. To actually allow her to be true to her religious beliefs and still be beautiful, was big. Especially during times of Trump presidency and his muslim ban, this was just everything. Final word: hopefully more top names in fashion will help to promote an atmosphere of progressive, open, and tolerant attitudes for all.
