How to be Political with Fashion

The idea of politicized style is very broad so it is good that there is a range of factors. Fashion does not exist within a vacuum, and with the emerging of modernization and social media, the requirement for accountability has jumped.

Co-opted by political moves, a range of brands are aware of the significance of what clothes carry. Since its beginning in 2016, the organization Proud Boys has embraced Fred Perry’s polo as a kind of uniform. In addition, New Balance goods were branded as the “official shoes of white people”.

Politicizing Brands in Modern Times

In London, youthful style brands used clothes as a medium to highlight problems in their community. Brexit, as an instance, was a taboo existence for many seasons now with a lot of controversial issues.

Stormzy, an artist, drew attention for the gun offense as well as the vulnerability of black people by sporting a stab-proof vest bearing a white and black Union Jack.

The vest went on screen in Croydon in a pop-up display of Banksy’s work, along with a notice describing it as a variant of the John Bull British men’s waistcoat upgraded for modern times.

Filtered down into the high road, the vest as a fashion item was replicated as a dominant element of contemporary streetwear. The craze for the clothing style visually seems to talk to some politically aesthetic which originally came from Britain.

Like many cultural minutes, this notion of rallying together was performed in front of us by Hollywood, both on-screen and from the actors whose own narratives discuss storylines using a larger section of society. It reminded people that style is glamour but maybe on many things, such as demonstration and solidarity.

As a gesture of empowerment, we all feel a close relationship together with a warning to people that we do not use style as a medium for political agenda.
