Strong political statements pervaded the runways this season, from New York through to Paris. The outcome of the U.S. Presidential election last November and the policies and rhetoric of the new administration, coupled with Britain’s vote to exit the European Union, served as major sources of inspiration for many of the designers’ collections.  Here are the top ten shows of the Fall/Winter 2017 season.
