White Bandanas? Fashion Week Stands Up to Trump’s Immigration Ban

Fashion Week White Bandana

It’s certainly more fashionable than safety pins. 

For once, a white handkerchief is being raised not as a sign of surrender, but as a show of resistance.

Business of Fashion editor-in-chief Imran Amed wrote last week a stinging indictment of the fashion industry's silence over President Donald Trump's besieged travel ban.

Fashion designers answered the call by incorporating white handkerchiefs on runways and invitations--a sign of solidarity for the refugees and legal residents who have been wrongly turned away as a result of the president's ban.

Models for Tommy Hilfiger's show were spotted wearing the white bandanas, and the invitation to Raf Simons's first show for Calvin Klein arrived with a white bandana and the hashtag #tiedtogether.
