Designers such as Ashish Gupta emphasise a theme in his new collection for Autumn Winter 2017 where Hope and love takes centre stage with the clear message we must stand up and unite against hate. Gupta’s intention was to throw glitter on politics in response to Trump as he stated hope must prevail in order to make a difference in the world if we are to promote change.

It seems even the big fashion industry veterans are getting more involved in a slew of political statements with Italian clothing brands such as Diesel. Artistic Director Nicola Formichetti and Italian fashion entrepreneur Renzo Rosso presented their debut PR Campaign #MakeLoveNotWalls with a film directed by David Lachapelle in response to US President Trump’s plan to build a wall separating the United States from Mexico.

For spring summer 2017 ‘Make Love Not Walls Campaign’ Diesel promotes super stretch denim as adaptability is their philosophy with slim fits to suit all shapes and sizes. What’s not to love.

So if your after clothing that promotes amnesty and is against hate Diesel is pioneering this political movement as Naomi Campbell lent her name to the cause by making a surprise appearance before midnight as party revellers danced the night away to a private DJ set by drag Artist Jodie Harsh.
