Fashion takes a stand for the rights of women

Proenza Schouler teams with visual artist and director Harley Weir, to create a fashion film with a real message for Planned Parenthood New York.

“A woman is…” a little black boy softly utters through a set of uneven teeth as he provides the introduction to one of the most important, beautiful and empowering video projects that The Impression has seen so far this year. For their third collaboration with visual artist and director Harley Weir, Proenza Schouler has decided to take a stand for the rights of all women and femmes with a film that directly supports Planned Parenthood of New York. The film is a resounding victory for representation and equality with an extremely diverse cast of women of all body types, identities, races and backgrounds as they monologue about femininity, showcase the beauty of their bodies and embrace themselves for who they are”. - Courtesy of The Impression
