Fashion brands all over the world have no problem making social and political statements. The most recent and widely talked about is the outrage on social media about reproductive rights and Planned Parenthood. We know that brands like Tory Burch, Kate Spade, and the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) have long been ambassadors for Planned Parenthood.
But this time, designers went wild!
Gucci recently expressed its stand on abortion and human rights in its Cruise 2020 fashion show at the Capitoline Museums in Rome. Creative Director Alessandro Michele created a pleated long-sleeve gown with a uterus embroidered on it. This signifies Alessandro’s continuing support and vision of freedom, equality, and self-expression. Moreover, Gucci stands true to its commitment to women all over the world to support sexual and reproductive rights, maternal health, and the freedom of individual choice.

Last June 5, Marc Jacobs announced the first charitable collaboration of his newly launched The Marc Jacobs Collectio. It’s a partnership with pop star Miley Cyrus and her Happy Hippie Foundation. Also, all proceeds are going to Planned Parenthood. Jacobs’s limited-edition Pink Hoodie is now available online, and exhibits a cheeky visual of a topless Miley holding sliced grapefruit over her boobies, accompanied by the strong statement “Don’t F ♥ck with my freedom.”
