    Let’s face it, the fashion industry doesn’t have the best reputation. In 2018, we still see cultural appropriation and a lack of diversity on the runways. Most models are still rail thin, while larger bodies are generally tokenized or are treated as “trendy,” rather than accepted as the norm.

    But, there are a handful of designers out there who are working to make fashion and Fashion Week a better place. Whether they’re putting in the work to make the industry more inclusive or using their voices to take a powerful stance, the NYFW runways have become more than just an epic display of sartorial masterpieces, they've become a powerful political platform.

    See what we mean, in our roundup of powerful NYFW moments, below.
