Fashion Brands Encouraging You to Vote This Election
No matter how much stress our current political climate gives you, there’s one thing you can do to ensure change, and that is GO VOTE! While this past year has brought about some incredible tragedies and frustration, to me, it’s truly incredible to see our youngest generation so passionate about voting for the world they want to live in.
This Tuesday, we have a big opportunity to use our voices for change. To bring light to the importance of voting, we’re highlighting some fashion brands using their voices to encourage their audiences to vote.

2. Prabal Gurung x Cynthia Rowley for Swing Left
Prabal Gurung who has been known to use his voice to speak up for injustice in the past, has joined forced with Swing Left, alongside Cynthia Rowley to create a collection of canvas tote bags. They’re described as, ‘the perfect door knocking tote,’ inspiring hope that, ‘Working together, we can take back the House.’
