Two days into New York Fashion Week and designers are putting their political opposition to President Donald Trump on full display.
Mexican immigrant designer Raul Solis sent a model down the runway wearing underwear with the words “Fuck your wall” written on the back of them. Other pieces featured messages that read, “No ban, no wall” and “We are all human beings.” The politically charged set was part of Solis’ show for LRS Studio, Breitbart reports:

Solis also showcased a piece featuring a topless woman. The outfit’s fashion statement was meant to send a message of “sexual empowerment.”
“It’s important to have that message of sexual empowerment, especially now- to say, ‘Hey, actually, you can do whatever you want,’” Solis told W magazine. “I don’t get too political, but obviously [this season] it’s impossible to dismiss.”
