We have all been touched and inspired by this year’s Women’s March on Washington in some way. This season New York Fashion Week was no exception! Designers Tome’s Ryan Lobo and Ramon Martin did such an amazing job creating a collection of Power, Humor, and Insight.
The clothing refelective of statements like “Free the Nipple!” and “My Body My Choice!” was a structured two-button black blazer with fur arms and lining, with a subtle white silhouette of a naked woman’s bust and torso on the front.
Models who walked the show included three plus-size women and one older model with slicked-back gray hair.
Lobo said backstage in a vogue.com interview,
“I think it’s important, that no matter whether you’re a fashion designer or an activist, that you make a statement and speak whenever you have the opportunity—all of our choices this season were very deliberate.”
And a statement it was! I wish I could own every piece from this collection but for now check out my favs below.
