Revolutionizing Fashion
As I participated in The Women's March On Washington 2017 this past weekend, I saw so many inspiring and passionate signs and expressions of unity, compassion and political protest. I took many photos but I have to say this picture is my favorite. I was so proud to see my fellow fashionistas show up and show out; putting their stamp on the Women's March.
You see, fashion is more than frilly clothes and expensive designer duds. Fashion is revolutionary in its own right. For women in America, clothing has always provided a means of visual resistance. In the1800s those who believed in dress reform, or the right to wear pants were deemed rebellious. At the 1963 March on Washington, hundreds of black women wore denim, overalls and natural hair, resisting protocol and rejecting expectations. Last November, when women showed up at the polls in pantsuits, they were not only attributing to activists of the past but expressing their support for the first female presidential candidate nominated by a major party.  The various clothing women wear to express their beliefs reflect a myriad of political issues .
So yes, fashion does have a place in politics.
