American Fashion Stands With Black Lives Matter

While protestors  took to the streets in major American cities in the fallout of the deadly shootings of Philando Castile in Minnesota and Alton Sterling in Louisiana by local police, figures in American fashion conveyed a rush of Instagrams communicating solidarity with the Black Lives Matter development and denouncing the violence. Adam Selman and hairstylist Duffy posted photography from the Civil Rights development caught by documentarian Gordon Parks, while others like Anna Cleveland, Emily Ratajkowski, Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian, and Maxwell Osborne of Public School posted quotes and hashtags. For a lot of these artists, their backing stretches out a long ways past the ranges of social media. Beyoncé issued a call to take action — quickly crashing the site contactingthecongress.org — while Osborne went to the Union Square protests in Manhattan Thursday. Here, we've gathered together a couple of the Instagram reactions from the American design group in the wake of the heightening gun violence epidemic.
