The focus of the Golden Globe Awards this past Sunday was not the fashion, but rather a Fashion Statement. We have to admit, there were some beautiful fashion standouts in addition to the powerful statement made by all the fashion collectively. Margot Robbie, in a plunging black embellished gown, and Dakota Johnson looked glamorous in Gucci. Kendall Jenner looked lovely in Giambattista Valli. Penelope Cruz dazzled in an off-the-shoulder Ralph & Russo gown. The focus though of the 75th Golden Globes was power, equality, and looking forward to a better day. This message came from women who have been abused and mistreated and are now banning together for change through the #MeToo and #TIMESUP movements. In the spirit of the message of the evening, we are placing a spotlight on designers who are known for their support of, and donations to, women’s causes.
