81 ‘Immigrant’ Fashion Icons Stand Against Muslim Ban at NYFW

In light of this year’s political New York Fashion Week, 81 fashion icons gathered together in solidarity to create a video against Trump’s Immigration Ban that features a diverse group of individuals from Adriana Lima to Diane Von Furstenberg and Waris Ahluwalia. Set against a monochrome background, they all share the same message: I am an Immigrant. This sentence is not written only in English, but in several other languages as well.

By using their celebrity status, these individuals are aligning their faces on a divisive issue to help others understand the diversity no only in the fashion industry, but the world.

The video is a powerful statement because it puts recognizable faces to its timely message.
