Yes you have the right to protest. Yes you have freedom of speech at your side. Yes you have a large soapbox at a fashion show and those in attendance stuck to see your banners. But seriously who the hell is even buying these outfits at these fashion shows, because if I see a guy wearing a pair of fury pants, I’m gonna think it’s a real ass f*ck Centaur – PB/TK

Raul Solis didn’t hold back his feelings for Donald Trump’s proposed wall in his New York Fashion Week show Friday, sending the president a message via one of his looks.

The Mexican-born designer sent models wearing backless dresses down the runway, displaying underwear with “Fuck Your Wall” and “No Ban No Wall” emblazoned on it, instantly causing a stir. 

Solis hasn’t responded to HufPost’s requests for comment, but he spoke to Dazed Digital about his collection and explained what the messages meant to him:

“My family is first generation Mexican and some had to migrate to the U.S., [so] this issue is something extremely personal to me,” he said. “I would not be able to present my collections if it was not for the opportunities the country has given us.”

The designer added, “I believe we all have a huge responsibility to speak up and take actions [with] whatever affects us directly. The fashion industry has always been a driving force in culture, changing the way we live and look.”
