First lady Melania Trump (pictured in June) is speaking out about being bullied. Melania Trump has raised a fair share of eyebrows since she launched her pet project, Be Best, because it aims, in part, to combat cyberbullying — with critics accusing her husband, President Trump, of being one of Twitter’s most egregious offenders. In addition to dropping off Be Best-branded tote bags laden with supplies at local schools, Trump made time during her trip to sit down for an exclusive interview with ABC News’ Tom Llamas.

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.
