GAP and Levi’s fresh dismissal of Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act suggests that fashion can indeed take a political stance.

Whether fashion can be political has been a hot topic of late and one that we recently highlighted here. GAP and Levi’s fresh dismissal of Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act suggests that fashion can indeed take a political stance, whether or not incorporated into the designs. The brands’ CEOs spoke up in a joint statement against the new state law which allows business providers to openly discriminate against LGBT people should serving them contradict their own religious beliefs. The brands mean that instating a law that is preventing gay people from shopping with them is not just bad business but a stepping back in time in terms of equality and tolerance whether or not incorporated into the designs. . We are happy to once again see some major US brands use their power to challenge discrimination and we would love to see some accompanying visuals like the one from Levi’s LGBT-themed campaign above to follow.
