New York Fashion Week Goes Global

Despite pending bans, and the current political climate, New York Fashion Week seemed to remain a melting pot of international designers and influences. We’ve pulled out some of our favorites to show from New York Fashion Week runways.

This season many of the models were immigrants, green card holders, and 1st/2nd Generation Americans. To not only make a fashion statement, but a political statement as well.
