Plus-size women are seeing themselves represented in fashion by designers and retailers in ways unseen before.
The line between fashion and politics has become more blurred over the years. In 2016, Maria Grazia Chiuri became the first female artistic director at Dior , and her debut collection centered on female empowerment for this historic moment at the storied fashion house. In celebration, she designed a T-shirt that said, “We Should All Be Feminists.” In 2017, shortly after the U.S. presidential election the previous November, designers continued to showcase their political stances through fashion. During designer Prabal Gurung ’s Fall 2017 show, he had models Bella Hadid and Candice Huffine walk down the runway wearing shirts that read, “The Future Is Female,” “Our Minds Our Bodies Our Power,” and “Nevertheless, She Persisted.” Celebrity favorite designer Tom Ford , known for his glitzy old Hollywood designs, debuted a chain handbag on his catwalk that said “Pussy Power,” alluding to the pink pussy hats worn during the Women’s March in January 2017. Political statements have also reached far outside the traditional “big four” fashion weeks (New York, London, Milan, and Paris). During Seoul Fashion Week in March earlier this year, Miss Gee Collection debuted two sweaters emblazoned with the words “#MeToo” and “Speak Up” in bold crimson letters in reference to the #MeToo movement that has swept around the globe. This season is no different. New York Fashion Week designers continue to use their catwalk shows to take political stands. Above, we present the political statements made at fashion week so far.

Slogan T-shirts are a powerful political tool. They instantly say something that the wearer wants to convey, and in the Instagram-obsessed world, they provide messages that are easily shared, reposted, understood.
Leslie Jones said she treated the Christian Siriano fashion show like a baseball game because she was so excited about the clothes and plus-size models.
Designer Christian Siriano dressed Meg Ryan and Janelle Monae for the CFDA awards, calling it "a nice change from the regular fashion girls."
Calling all newly minted fiancées, soon-to-be brides, and just sheer wedding eye-candy fans — the Bridal Fashion Week Spring 2018 collections are finally here. One example is the trendy off-the-shoulder top look reworked as a wedding dress. At Lela Rose, a model wore a long, crisp white gown featuring an off-the-shoulder panel made of tiny, perfect, delicate white pearls. White gowns were still the majority, but black wedding dresses seem to be back.

Anna Chlumsky’s gown featured a dramatic train.
