Celebrities and even local fashionistas are taking part of the rage that is using clothes to make a political statement. Artists and actors alike are taking part in this trend, namely, Millie Bobby Brown, Frank Ocean, and those who wore black to the 75th Golden Globes.

These specific artists have made headlines by uniquely modifying their outfits to suit their messages that they end up wearing to the red carpet. Recently Millie Bobby Brown has had the names of the seventeen victims from the parkland school shooting sewn onto her jacket at an event. It’s demonstrations such as these that inspire others to use their own personals styles to showcase their opinions.

Attire defines, to some degree, who people are and allows them to express their views and pride as well. This accessible platform helps people to convey their message or beliefs. While some protests are audible and resounding, using clothing can be a form of silent protesting. Allowing people to participate in a less direct form of opposition.

Typically people, as well as designers, try to not form articulate beliefs with their closing, because of the fear of running beliefs. But 2017 and 2018 have sparked a revolution that says otherwise. Some wear shirts that have upfront opinions on them while other wear other clothing that signifies unification with a certain view. Such as the pink hats from the women march.

All of these expressions of the self and thinking have led to a more drawn out and creative trend in the fashion world. While some believe it is troublesome and shouldn’t exist. There is no doubt that it is taking over the runways and streets alike.
