On Our Minds: Made For History

Posted in Style
by Isabelle O'Carroll on 19 September, 2016

Bringing together names like Marc Jacobs, Diane von Furstenburg and Prabal Gurung, this catwalk collection kicked off NYFW with a politically-themed show.

So far, the catwalks shows and presentations of SS17 have had a definite political thread running through them. On our minds is ‘Made for History’, the NYFW-opening runway show and collaborative collection supporting Hillary Clinton’s presidential candidacy. Hosted by Anna Wintour and Huma Abedin, the showcase introduced designs from 15 renowned New York-based designers including Marc Jacobs, Diane von Furstenberg, Prabal Gurung and Jason Wu. The garments, all advocating Clinton as the candidate of choice, included a Marc Jacobs-signed tee with an optical 3D portrait of the politician and a hand-painted print design of all 50 states ‘representing unity’ by Jason Wu. When opening the show, Wintour explained that all Made For History clothes are produced in the U.S. by union workers, “unlike the Republican candidate’s unspeakably hideous ties”.
