Fashion & Donald Trump

24FIFTHJP1-master768

He’s not even taken office yet and Donald Trump has already had a huge impact on the USA’s economy. Sparking protests day and night the moment he was elected and causing mass panic here in Europe, there’s no doubt things are about to change.

The fashion industry is not an area usually talked about in politics, and it’s certainly not something I can find a quote from Trump about. However, I found this really interesting article on the New York Times about Fifth Avenue – NYC’s Oxford Street – and the challenges it has faced in the last few weeks.

In the run-up to Thanksgiving and Christmas, it’s the busiest time of year for New York’s flagship stores and while the president-elect’s HQ is set up in Trump Tower, the challenges facing the retail giants only gets bigger.

It’s an interesting read. What are your thoughts?
