With the British General Election quickly approaching, and New York Fashion week lightening up the fashion world- we need to appreciate what both have to offer. Fashion and politics may seem unlike to match, but in reality they are similar. Many powerful women in politics are fashionable. My political fashion icons are Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama and The Queen! All are fabulous at what they do and look fabulous while doing it. Politics has impacted fashion in numerous of ways. The ending of the Second World War and shortening of skirts. The evolution of women styling suits; The traditional “suit” was introduced to women’s wear in the 30’s after the end of the boyish silhouettes of the 20’s.
